I'm excited to be offering a still life painting workshop in Victoria July 30th & 31st.

Here is more info.
Two Day Still Life Painting Workshop with Artist Noah Layne
July 30th and 31st.
Please register by July 23rd

Cost $200 Materials not included
Some drawing or painting experience recommended
This workshop will take place in James Bay Victoria.
In this workshop Noah will show how he goes about starting and finishing a lemon still life painting.  The focus will be on technique and not a finished painting.  Both days Noah will demo from 11-1.  There will be a break for lunch and then the students will work from 1:45-5:30pm with breaks as needed.

Lots of demos and individual instruction!

Some plein air paintings

Here are two recent plein air paintings and a small still life study.  The weather here in Victoria is finally starting to get warm making painting outdoors much more appealing. :)  The only problem with the warmer weather is that the lovely cold weather evening skies are now gone.

 Sunset study Swan Lake, Oil on canvas panel 8x10

Dallas Beach Study, Oil on canvas panel 10x8
The sun started to get lower and lower as I was painting making the reflections on the water brighter and brighter... I probably fried my retinas a bit, not good for ones career!

I was testing how much cobalt drier to use for a workshop I'm teaching later this summer.  Trying to find the right amount so the paint is dry the next day but not dry in two hours ;)
