Continuing Studies in Watercolour

If you are an experienced watercolour artist and feel like you have plateaued, this workshop series will push you out of your comfort zone and shake things up. In the process, you will paint inspired paintings that thrill and excite.

Each of these four workshop sessions builds on the one before it and stretches your comfort zone a bit further. We will be doing a lot of exercises, sketches and full paintings.

To make sure that you get the one-on-one attention that you need, these workshops will be limited to eight participants.

Your confidence will grow. Your colours will dance and your paintings will burst with light and expression.

About the Instructor

Zan Barrage

A classically trained artist, Zan is the recipient of several awards for plein air painting in Ontario. He is the founder and past president of Ontario Plein Air Society, a group of Ontario painters dedicated to painting the Canadian landscape from life.

I paint because I fall in love with a moment. Sometimes I capture it successfully, and other times, too many times, I fail. I am proud to say that my artwork has seeped into private collections from Australia through Europe to North America. I cherish all my collectors and value their choice to own my artwork. In a way, a work of art is not whole.
