In this workshop for all levels, Louise will work with each student individually in the medium of the students choosing.
See why painting outdoors was and still is so popular. Learn how to setup and prepare for the outdoor plein aire experience. Instruction will focus on selecting your composition, editing the landscape and the relationship pattern and colour. Guidance will be given in simplification of a scene. Demonstrations will be in soft pastels. We will have the opportunity to create two painting studies per day, one with the morning light and the other with the afternoon light. Louise is approachable, eager to share her knowledge, patient and encouraging with her fellow artist.
Our location on Quadra Island is abound with subject matter both intimate and panoramic. Join us for an unforgettable painting experience, first enjoyed by the French impressionists, that is alive and thriving today.
