Sketching and Painting with Watercolours with Alfonso Tejada

Join Alfonso as he demonstrates two valuable components of creating a watercolour painting!

Alfonso will initially focus on developing sketches using dry drawing media, such as graphite sticks and Conte pencils. He will then discuss how to develop your drawings further into a painting, using various techniques such as painting wet-on-wet, and blending your colours. This demonstration is great for everyone – all levels welcome!

Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Granville Island or contact them at 604‑736‑7028 to register.

Alfonso Tejada's plein air artwork is influenced by his background as an Architect and Urban designer in Mexico and Canada. His approach follows two traditional ways of painting outdoors – ala prima (direct watercolour), and playful ink and pen sketches with washes of colour.

This dynamic approach helps build confident brushwork, invites a quicker decision-making process, and encourages creative instincts; all of which are important aspects in plein air painting. An advocate and promoter of plein air workshops and events, Alfonso's busy schedule includes teaching workshops in Florence, Venice, Guanajuato, and as an instructor in West Vancouver.

He has also the representative leader in Canada of the Fabriano In Aquarello organization, an international artistic convention dedicated to watercolour painting, organized by the InArte society and held annually in Fabriano, Italy.
