First workshop of the season!Posted: March 2, 2013
Today is my 500th blog post (and sketch) so it seems fitting to announce my first watercolour workshop for 2013, which will be in Kamouraska, Quebec, from June 3-6, 2013.
Situated on the south shore of the St. Lawrence river, about two hours’ drive north of Quebec City, the village of Kamouraska is one of the most beautiful — and therefore paintworthy — sites in Quebec. Its breathtaking maritime scenery, history and charm were captured in Anne Hebert’s novel, Kamouraska, which Claude Jutra also made into a movie starring Geneviève Bujold. It’s also been a magnet for generations of Canadian and American artists, who have been drawn to its rough, unpolished beauty.
The workshop will consist of four days of instruction, painting, critiques and fellowship. If you think this might interest you or if you want to find out more about the workshop, the place, or how to register, have a look at my updated summer workshops page.
In the coming weeks I will be announcing dates for more workshops, including some in Montreal. It’s going to be a busy summer!
