October 27

Dennis Curran

Watercolour.

Dennis very skillfully uses light and shadow to capture the exquisite beauty of the land and sea. Students will paint a Landscape or two using a limited palette of 4 Colours- French Ultramarine,  Brown Madder, New Gamboge, and Burnt Sienna. Autumn presents many wonderful challenges. Come and paint along with Dennis.

 

November 24

J’anna Jacqulyn

Watercolour Basics and Holiday Greeting Cards

J’anna has a magic touch with her brush. The morning is all about basics and simple exercises – brushstrokes, paint consistency, amount of water, pigment, blending, and soft/hard edges to complete simple nature scenes. Bring lots of paper. Afternoon program. A popular workshop topic from last year is being repeated – Creating Christmas cards of a winter scene. You may bring images to get help with as well.
