This is a little known event, at least in Montreal. And yet, the quality of the instructors is top notch. The details about this year's event can be found here - definitely worth a look.
This year, I went for a full day workshop with Bob Burridge. A full day indeed - from 3:30AM till 9PM - driving, painting and then driving back.
I brought back 6 warm-ups, 3 unfinished collage paintings with the theme "Claustrophobia", a bag full of goodies from the store and many pearls of wisdom from Bob.
The warm-ups - 2 min speed sketching. We were given words as topics - kiss, claustrophobia, to gather, calm etc.
These are 3 paintings on the theme Claustrophobia - works in progress.
And finally the bounty:
I came back energized and looking forward to doing more painting. Bob shared a lot of usefule tips, but few things really hit home.
