En Plein Air Landscape

A weekend hike to Brandywine Meadows and Mountain. A spectacular hike in the alpine, near Squamish B.C.. I stopped to paint a quick sketch of the meadows, I could see small masses of glacial ice on top of the mountain. The sky was a deep blue reflected in the bubbling creeks surrounded by wild flowers. This little sketch tries to capture some of the scale of peaks beside the trees that vanish into the base of the mountain ascent.

Summer 2020

The Shadbolt Centre for Arts opened up to small art classes this summer. This August painting class has been the first in-classroom series I have taught since March, because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Shadbolt Centre for Arts staff did an amazing job of ensuring a safe workplace for student clients and teaching staff during the week.

Summer Watercolours has been a wonderful week drawing and painting in the sunshine. Following covid-19 safety protocol our class of six students ran smoothly. We had a lots of space in the classroom and spent most of the day painting outdoors in the beautiful environment of Deer Lake, Century Gardens and Burnaby Village Museum.
