The Magic of Plein Air Painting

The Magic of Plein Air Painting – An Intermediate Workshop for Oil and Acrylic Painters. Learn to work quickly and confidently on location in this one day plein air workshop with Sheree Jones on beautiful Bowen Island.

This workshop takes place at the home of David van Berckel, owner of Opus Art Supplies. Bold landscape and colourful garden studies are featured in this unique location, a garden setting featuring a wonderful variety of flora and structures surrounded by forest and sky. 

This workshop is designed for intermediate oil and acrylic painters, and is perfect for the studio painter looking to “take it outdoors”, and plein air painters who would like to take their work to the next level. Painting on location is the best way to record your observations in any environment. You will spend the day in the garden making small plein air studies while recording the magic of your surroundings. There will be plenty of one on one instruction with time for positive and encouraging conversation.
