Spring is over in Southern Ontario and the cold, wet and windy weather we’ve been suffering makes me think that summer has been cancelled. I hope not. Anyway, last Tuesday was the final day of Spring term at my studio. I wanted a colourful and relatively simple still life and opted for this bowl of fruit.
Simplicity was the theme for my demonstration, as well. I light the still life with a lamp, which is directly above it. That illuminates the upper area of the various objects. With that in mind, I suggested that the core shadows be kept simple and strong.
We’ve had great energy in the morning and evening classes. Many of the newer students, in particular, have come a long way with their watercolour painting and, in general, everyone did very well. Congratulations to all and thanks for making Spring term a positive creative experience.
That’s all very well but what about this summer? Maybe, I can help. I’m offering three wonderful plein air watercolour holidays/workshops this July and August. All are confirmed. Plein Air Toronto is full with a waiting list but I have room for you on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick and in the Cotswolds region of England. Check them out and treat yourself to an unforgettable art vacation in a beautiful locale with good company.
