Adventures with a Travel Sketchbook with Keith Valentine
Sat, April 22, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
View the world through Keith’s artistic eyes!
Keith Valentine will share his experiences of thirty-five years of travel sketching; discuss techniques of sketching on the run; and in a Powerpoint presentation, show watercolour sketches of some of the remote places he has been.
He will also bring along a few sketchbooks, and have his recent book for sale, “Finding a Place to Sit”. He will incorporate a quick sketching exercise, so bring a small sketchbook and a pencil or pen to follow along!
Learn how to paint plein air and perfectly prepare for the upcoming Opus Outdoor Painting Challenge on May 7th!
Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus North Vancouver or contact them at 604‑904‑0447 to register.
Though not a trained artist, Keith was a soil scientist who travelled widely within Canada and around the world and carried a sketchbook instead of a camera. In retirement, Keith has learned to bind and restore books, making his own sketchbooks.
