Design Your Painting: Watercolor

June 3 - 4, 2017; 2 days; 9am - 4pm

In his step-by-step style, Peter will teach students to plan paintings using the elements and principles of design – what to put in and what to leave out. Learn to paint what you know and not what you see. Instruction will include demonstrations and one-to-one instruction, and students can expect to complete two paintings per day following Peter’s easy, paint-along style.

This class will be cancelled on May 27, 2017, if minimum enrollment is not met. Please register before this date.

Our workshops are small (maximum 20 participants) and fun (very relaxed atmosphere). Peter paints in a loose, spontaneous manner and students are encouraged to do the same....."don't worry about painting inside the lines"......"let the water work it's magic" are two of his favourite sayings.

Peter's unique style, "secret tool", and step-by-step approach make watercolour easy for all. Participants can expect to take home AT LEAST two "keepers", maybe more, as time is allocated for at least one demo and 4 complete paintings. With Peter demonstrating and supervising each step along the way and me (Pauline) helping out in general where needed, everyone gets individual help. Student work is matted and displayed throughout the weekend so.....there are lots of "pats on the back" and a good opportunity to see improvement. Even participants who have never painted before are amazed at their own results.
