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.

Three Day Acrylic Workshop - April in Pemberton

Three Day Brian Buckrell Acrylic Workshop 

LocationLazy S Ranch Studio – Pemberton, B.C.

April 8, to 10 2016

This three day acrylic workshop will  expose students to different approaches for planning and developing an acrylic landscape painting. The course  is designed for the serious beginner (with acrylic experience) to the intermediate painter interested in alternative approaches.

We will work from the same references provided.  The first morning we will  review/discuss  the  principles of value, form, perspective and composition. We will paint together the rest of the weekend.  We will plan using shape and value sketches and discuss best compositional choices. Each "start"  will be made with a different approach- in each case building on  value. We will develop the paintings together stroke by stroke, glaze by glaze. We will stop as we go to critique and adjust/correct - and make a final critique to consider and other choices we could have made to make the  piece stronger.

Should be fun.


Enrollment is limited to 12 participants.  Time: Days one and two 9-5, Day three 9-3.

Supply list will be sent.

The studio is located 17km North of Pemberton, B.C. and 45 minutes north of Whistler. It is a 50-acre farm in the Pemberton Meadows area of Pemberton. The studio is a new, 1150 square foot, commercially lit space with a full kitchen and bathroom. There is ample parking.

If you are looking for accommodation there are a number of options available. Google the Lillooet River Lodge, Pemberton Valley Lodge, or The Spotted Raven B&B. There are also other hotels and B&Bs in Pemberton. Do not stay in Mount Currie as it is too far away. Whistler is a 40 minute drive from the studio.
