10.00 AM - 4.00 PM
Federation Academy 1310 Johnston St, Vancouver, BC V6H 3S1
SUPPLY LIST COMING SOON!
Join Tim Bennison in a fun one-day watercolour painting workshop for beginner and intermediate artists. Learn how to create bold, expressive and loose paintings, while still capturing the light and detail in a scene. Students in this highly interactive class will do quick exercises on composition, dark and light values, wet-on-wet underpainting, and masking. Then we will put it all together in a landscape painting. You can work from a demo reference photo, or bring your own photos. You’ll finish with a new appreciation for this wonderful medium, and above all you’ll experience how to let the water flow and let the paint do the work!
About the Instructor - Tim Bennison, AFCA
Tim has been painting watercolours for 40 years. He lives in North Vancouver and his subject matter ranges from landscapes and architecture to portraits. He loves the challenge of watercolours, using the light and transparency of the medium to capture a moment in time.
Often capturing scenes from various locations on the North Shore and BC, Tim’s paintings tell stories via the influence of people on the landscape.
Tim has had many exhibitions over the years, including the Harmony Arts Festival since 2015, North Van Art in the Garden 2017, West Van City Hall Art in the Hall 2018, North Van Arts Crawl 2019 and 2020, Hollyburn Eye Clinic Watercolour Visions of the North Shore 2019 and The West Fine Arts Show 2019. He had an ongoing exhibition (2020-2021) in the Blue Shore Financial Arts in View program and show at the Kay Meek Centre in West Vancouver (2022). His paintings have been juried into many recent Federation of Canadian Artists Exhibitions at the FCA Gallery on Granville Island. His work has been featured in North Van Arts “You are Here” Calendars for 2020-2023 and in several issues of the Art of Watercolour magazine.
Tim is a Signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
