Brian Buckrell
Re-scheduled to June 2021

This four-day acrylic workshop will expose students to approaches for planning and developing an acrylic landscape painting. It is designed for the serious beginner (with acrylic experience) to the intermediate painter interested in strengthening fundamentals for developing strong acrylic landscape paintings. Oil painters using odourless solvents are welcome but all demos will be made in acrylics.

Day one we will review the fundamental principles of shape, value, colour and design that we will apply in our painting.  We will plan and paint together from a provided reference.  Day two we will review those fundamentals and you will paint from your own reference under supervision. Day three we will cover the fundamentals of perspective for landscape painters. Using a reference provided we plan and make a painting of an alley scene emphasizing both linear and atmospheric perspective. Day four you will paint again from your own reference under supervision and following the principles presented. 

Lots of learning; lots of fun!
