It was a beautiful morning near the Niagara Escarpment, Collingwood, but VERY windy. Was hoping to spend the morning - but the wind got to me so did two quick sketches - water mixable oils on linen board 11x14.
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 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.
