Confident Watercolours with Ian de Hoog

North Vancouver

Some of the most beautiful aspects of watercolour paintings happen when the paint is allowed to do its thing.

When we are disappointed with the results, it is often because we are trying to make watercolour do something it can’t. Join Ian de Hoog and discover how brush, paint and paper selection play a role in setting you on a path to success. While creating a simple landscape, Ian will explain how these factors affect the planning and execution of what it is you are trying to paint. Wash techniques, brushwork, building value and the all-important topic of timing will be covered.

Space is limited and registration is required.

Ian de Hoog is a Canadian watercolourist and instructor living out on the West Coast of British Columbia. Ian developed an early visual interest in the medium due to the works of Franklin Carmichael and Toni Onley. However, it was during a brief stint studying architecture that a physical love of painting manifested. While primarily self-taught, Ian is very grateful for the recent opportunities he has had to study with Thomas Schaller and Herman Pekel.

Ian’s paintings have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions and are included in a growing number of private collections around the world.
