Arbutus Seascape – Watercolour Workshop with Frank Townsley

September 22, 2019 @ 10:00 am 5:00 pm


If you’re looking for a fun way to spend a Sunday, and come away with a finished watercolour painting, this “one shot” workshop with Frank is for you. All supplies, brushes, paint, tools and paper are included in the price so you can paint along with Frank to recreate an Arbutus Seascape. Workshop Overview This workshop depicts a close-up view of an arbutus tree with the Gulf Islands in the background, and some small, closer, cresting waves.  All painting supplies will be provided for, including a working photo and enlargement for tracing purposes. Workshop Objectives In this workshop several techniques will be demonstrated that will be applicable to some of the painting features. This includes how to illustrate distant islands, reflections of the nearest island, cresting waves in the foreground (achieved through a scratching technique with an x-acto knife), and lastly, how to achieve the shading gradations utilizing several different colours on the tree trunk.
