Limited Palette in Acrylics with Bob McMurray
Sun, June 4, 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Sun, June 4, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Using only six colours plus white, Bob will develop a painting with an infinite range of colours and colour harmonies.
Learn to simplify your colours to give yourself a lightweight and trouble-free palette for painting en plein air. You will learn some basic colour theory to help you choose pigments for clean triads and complementary colour combinations.
Bob will also explore the use of Golden Open slow drying paints, which are great for painting outdoors in the summer months.
Whether you’re painting in the studio or outdoors, why simplify the process!
Space is limited and registration is required.

Bob was born in New Westminster and grew up in Richmond. He became a Chartered Accountant in 1964, was elected a Fellow (FCA) by the Chartered Accountants of BC in 1992, has been in public practice in Surrey, British Columbia since 1964 and is a partner in the firm of McMurray, Roberts, Heming & Wyborn.
Bob considered a career as a commercial artist in high school but opted instead for the business world. After establishing his practice as Chartered Accountant he renewed his interest in oil painting, attending night school classes given by Alexander Sutherland in 1973. Bob has been influenced by the works of Edward Hopper and Robert Genn and has worked in watercolour since attending the Federation Workshop on Saltspring Island in 1986 and subsequent years. He completed the Federation Foundation Courses in the 90's, returned to oils and other media and was elected to Signature status (AFCA) by the Federation of Canadian Artists in 1995.
Bob has been actively involved in the community and has held various offices as a volunteer for the City of Surrey, the Federation of Canadian Artists, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of British Columbia and the Hamber Foundation. Bob's paintings are in a number of private and corporate collections in Canada and abroad.
