Composition and Perspective for Strong Landscape Paintings with Brian Buckrell
Perspective is one of the essential fundamentals required for strong landscape painting.; yet many developing artists fail to include it (even avoid it) in their learning. In this workshop, we will develop and apply an understanding of both linear (and it’s not all about buildings) and aerial perspectives and see how easily you can strengthen your paintings when the principles of perspective are used correctly.
There will be notes sent in advance so that during class time we can focus on painting: exercises, demos, painting together, and on your own.
Lots of learning – lots of fun!
This workshop is suitable for both oil and acrylic painters.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
I retired as Professor of Veterinary Medicine, University of Guelph, in 2001 and relocated from Ontario, with my wife Cathy, to Comox B.C., on Vancouver Island.
I began painting seriously in 2004 studying with acclaimed artists in Canada and the US. In 2007, I invested in full-time study at the Jeffrey Watts Atelier in Encinitas California, drawing and painting from life. I continue to study with exceptional artists today. I am very fortunate and appreciative to have found this adventure in my senior years.
I paint full time. My paintings are reflective of my love of the outdoors, agriculture and rural communities. The more I paint the more my work moves towards abstracted impressions of my subjects.
My work has won numerous awards and competitions for both studio and plein air . I was honored to have been chosen a faculty participant in the Plein Air Convention in Santa Fe NM and the only Canadian chosen to participate in the Door County Plein Air competition in Wisconsin.
My work has been sited in Arabella Magazine, in South West Art and in the North Light Books: The Best of Acrylics 2014 , 2015 , 2016 and Plein Air Magazines- Plein Air Today.
