FREE DEMONSTRATION: Watercolor and Mixed Media

Opus Downtown  207 West Hastings (at Cambie)


We'll start by looking at the classic ink sketch with watercolor wash. This is a perfect technique for plein air painting. I'll be doing a lot of plein air (outdoor, on location) painting this summer, starting with a workshop this Sunday, and more throughout the summer!

Next we'll experiment with modern mixed media and watercolor techniques emphasizing play and creative process. It's hard to believe these are watercolors!! We'll look at ways of presenting these watercolors that don't require framing behind glass.


How do I register? The demo is free, but it fills up fast. Please call Opus Downtown at 604-678-5889 to register and reserve your seat so you won't be disappointed!


Plein Air Sketching with Watercolor and Ink

2-day workshops

starting Sunday June 15th

one more starting Monday July 6th


Watercolor and ink lend themselves perfectly to a compact take-along painting kit, whether you are on vacation, walking Vancouver's shoreline or sitting in your back garden. Learn how to capture the essence of a scene quickly and easily. Bring home unique, personalized mementoes from your travels. Experience your community in a new way! Classes begin in the studio for instruction and demonstration before heading outdoors. We will return to the studio for review after onsite painting. You may want to pack a small snack. All Levels. No drawing experience necessary.
