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.

Free Acrylic DEMO Victoria OPUS Store

Please join me at the Victoria Opus Store, this Saturday, March 3 from 2-4 PM.   Below is the write up copied from the Opus website.

Establishing a Value Pattern in Acrylics
with Brian Buckrell

Sat, March 2, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Establishing a value plan is key to making a strong painting. Brian will demonstrate how he uses a colour shaper to "pick out" his design from a dark transparent under-painting. This approach to starting a painting helps simplify shapes and moves towards a more abstracted design.
Brian Buckrell is a Comox based artist who paints full time in oil and acrylics. His primary interest is in producing abstracted interpretations of the Canadian landscape. He is represented by galleries in BC, Alberta and Ontario. Visit www.brianbuckrell.comto view his paintings.
