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.

New Acrylic Workshop - Coast Collective, Victoria.



New acrylic workshop scheduled at Coast Collective, Victoria. For details: Coast Collective 

Acrylic Landscape Painting with Brian Buckrell


Acrylic Landscape Painting with Brian Buckrell
Instructor: Brian Buckrell
Date: October 31 - November 1, 2015
Time: Saturday & Sunday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Class Cost: $250.00 plus GST
Class Code: 1015-BB-AW
Registration Deadline: Oct 27, 2015
This workshop is designed to expose students to three different approaches to starting and developing acrylic landscape paintings.  Students will be provided reference for a coastal landscape, a seascape and a mountain scape. We will work together to plan, design and develop each painting as far as time permits. Each will be started using a different approach:  
  1. by creating a value under-painting using dark transparent paint; 
  2. beginning on a dark or black ground; and
  3. beginning on a brightly toned canvas. 
Emphasis will be on planning, design, working with values and colour, critiquing our work, and finally making the paintings "stand on their own", free of reference. 

The workshop is for serious beginners, with experience in working with acrylics, to intermediate painters wanting to try different approaches.
