Limited Palette with Acrylics (Simplify Plein Air Painting) with Robert McMurray
Sat, April 15, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Sat, April 15, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Discover how working with a limited palette can offer a useful and simplified palette for both plein air and studio work.
With six colours plus white, two triads consisting of three pairs of complementaries, Robert will show you how he develops a painting that has an infinite range of colours and colour harmonies. Robert will also explore how he uses acrylics in combination with Golden OPEN Acrylics and other mediums that slow the drying process down. This slower drying time makes them perfect for painting outdoors during the summer months!
Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Granville Island or contact them at 604‑736‑7028 to register.
Robert began painting in 1973 and has since worked in oils, watercolours, acrylics, pastels, gouache, graphite and mixed media.

Robert is a signature member and past president of the Federation of Canadian Artists and has taught numerous painting workshops in Western Canada and Europe.
