GO TO YOUR ROOM ! 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 doing it - Go to your room!

I have had the good fortune to take instruction from outstanding artists in Canada and the USA. I am now focusing on my own development ( Going to MY room!) and sharing what I have learned and continue to learn. 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.

There are a few spots remaining in the two day workshop: Mastering the Power in Acrylics.

Brian Buckrell WORKSHOP 
Campbell River Art Gallery 
March 7,8


Acrylic is the most versatile of the painting mediums. This two day workshop will cover the types of acrylic paints and mediums and painting techniques used to take advantage of the full potential in acrylics. The first day and a half will be demonstrations and group  exercises. The final afternoon participants will use the techniques in developing their own paintings.

 Participants will receive a recommended reading list, a supply list and my outline Thoughts on Making a Landscape Painting. Designed for the serious beginner and the intermediate level painter wanting a review.

Cost: $285 / Gallery members: $275
