I borrowed this phrase from the recently deceased Canadian painter Robert Genn who believed that there is only so much we can learn about how to paint from the many fine instructors and resources available today. The true learning comes from going off on our own and just doing it - Go to your room!

I have had the good fortune to take instruction from outstanding artists in Canada and the USA. I continue to work on my own development ( Going to MY room!) . I share, through this blog and workshops, what I have learned and what others have shared with me.

I created this blog primarily for those attending my workshops to keep in touch and to further share as we grow together. If others are interested in following that would be great.

Enjoy the journey.

New Acrylic Workshop Announced for Campbell River Art Gallery

New acrylic two day workshop to be held March 7/8 at the Campbell River Art Gallery on Vancouver Island. The program is designed for serious beginners to intermediate artists wishing to explore the great potential in the acrylic medium.

Clip from the Campbell River Art Gallery Website. 
We will focus on techniques and equipment useful to acrylic painters, on different approaches to beginning an acrylic painting  and the use of different types of acrylic paints and mediums.

I will be doing demos and a few paint-along-with-me drills. There will be exercises to practice. On the Sunday afternoon participants will work on their own painting employing many of the techniques demonstrated.

Participants will receive my recommended reading list, a supply list and my outline Steps for Making a Landscape Painting.
