Robert Genn Painting Workshop at Hollyhock, Cortes Island, B.C.

We were all attracted to the Hollyhock garden. Many
chose to paint there and on the beach, during the workshop.

I can still hear Bob say, "Commit and then correct as you paint",

"Start with a toned ground to remove the white of the canvas"
and "Paint the foreground trees first...establish the horizon line".

Below Bob demonstrates how to pour a diluted mix
of Phthalo blue paint, medium and water over the entire or
part of the painted surface.
A rag is used to spread this thin mixture. This technique
unifies the painting. The pale glow of the blue glaze enhanced
the orange that was added later.

This workshop on the beach, at Hollyhock, was fabulous.
If you are interested in a more adventurous format, Bob
takes painters by helicopter to the mountain tops.
Here is the information:
