Raptors! Painting Workshop
Challenge yourself in this 3-day (Fri-Sat-Sun) watercolour course (acrylic painters are welcome as well!) for intermediate to advanced artists that includes a visit to The Raptors centre (admission included in course price) in North Cowichan where you will get up close to birds of prey. Artist Harold Allanson will guide the group and you’ll take photos and work with this experience to create your raptor painting. He also has his own photo library to share. Step-by-step instruction with lots of demonstrations and support will help students complete a painting in three days. Harold’s classes are no pressure events, and he works with all the students one-on-one at their comfort levels. He believes that an enjoyable experience is key to learning!
Instructor: Harold Allanson, SFCA, TWSA, CSPWC, holds a life-long interest in drawing and painting, but was unable to fully express his talent until taking early retirement twenty years ago. Since then it’s allowed him the luxury of being able to paint for several hours most days. His realistic watercolours are representative of his life experiences and observations, often depicting working friends, people he’s met, their lives and their jobs. The west coast of BC where he lives and the ranch lands of the interior where he grew up are all inspiration for his work. https://www.haroldallanson.com/about
