Painter's Lodge Workshop

Island Farm
$400 USD

I have been away teaching a workshop at Painter's Lodge in Campbell River, BC for the past few days. I am asked to teach there every spring and fall and enjoy it each time. The weather was sunny, warm, and beautiful. The Lodge is right on the water and we watched the fishermen leave each morning and come in again each afternoon with their catch. We even saw orcas (killer whales) this time and watched them play for awhile. It is only the second time that I have seen them but I imagine that it never gets old.
The above painting is the painting that I demonstrated. There were 21 people in the class and each one did an amazing job. It is exciting to watch someone new to watercolor discover how wonderful it is.

To purchase, please visit my Etsy shop or contact me.
Shipping is free to Canada and the U.S.

Thank you D.D. and Asit. I enjoy painting foliage because it is fun to splatter and see what happens.

I see the Fall is knocking the door already. I love the feeling of cooler air. You did great job on making trees very washed and houses very detailed.

thank you Leslie,

Thank you Irina. Yes, fall is here along with the rain and the wind! But I shouldn't complain too much. We had a gorgeous summer and the colors of autumn are great to paint.
