An Online Landscape Painting Workshop with Charlie Easton

February 23, 2021 - March 04, 2021



Charlie has an infectious passion for plein air and landscape painting which he will share with us through 4 interactive Zoom sessions. We will be able to work along with him in his studio and on location bringing in this way the plein air experience to your studio. We will have demos, critiques, and key learnings from Charlie’s perspective on how to make compelling art. Some of the concepts to be covered are:

  • Composing a painting to tell a compelling story
  • Colour mixing. Using colour to tell your story.
  • Outdoor set up and getting something done fast.
  • Critiquing and demoing anything that comes up from student paintings.

This is a workshop that will inspire you, get you going, help you improve your practice and will make you fall in love with the original form of landscape art.

Charlie Easton comes from a family of British artists. He moved to Canada in 2006 and immediately fell in love with the same scenery that inspired many of the Group of Seven. A prolific painter of landscapes and seascapes in both oils and acrylics, Charlie is represented by galleries across North America and Europe where he regularly has solo exhibitions of his work.

He is a Senior Signature Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (SFCA) and has studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and at Emily Carr University. His teaching is now in demand and this year he will be on the faculty at the Plein Air Convention in Denver, Colorado.“In my work I invite the viewer to come hiking with me, to ski by my side, and to see the same stunning views that get me so excited to be alive! I try to focus all my energy on capturing the most important elements in a scene. Expending energy on anything that gets in the way of the story just isn’t worth it. I paint in a style which mirrors my life motto. Maximum fun, minimum fuss.”
