August 12-14: Plein air watercolour painting with Roger Savage, RCA.
The richness and variety of on-site painting motifs (rugged beach, forest, bog, and ponds) will be our inspiration for this unique weekend workshop. The group will be small to allow for one-on-one painting tips as well as daily critiques and demo paintings by the resource artist. Participants should have drawing skills, know the names of their colours, and have had some previous painting experience. Friday evening there’ll be a technical review and hands-on watercolour exercises. We’ll paint on location the following two days, and wrap-up the program at 4 pm Sunday. Roger is an experienced watercolour artist having led workshops in Cuba, Bermuda, Germany, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. His work sparkles with light, energy and is painted directly on location, inspired by sites as familiar as Port Mouton, N.S., and remote as Sable and Ellesmere Islands (www.rogersavage.ca).
