Plein Air Painting - Inspired by the Group of Seven

En plein air " in the open air" painting was popularized by the impressionists and was a major shift in how artwork was created at the time. The Group of Seven relied on the ability to get outside and view the Canadian landscape directly, in order to capture the true spirit of the land and you can, too.
 
A demo, some basic instruction in the  use of oil paints, and individual help and you will be ready to create your own treasured painting of the Minden Whitewater Preserve. Other locations can be arranged as well. 
 
Local artist Harvey Walker has been painting for years and has a studio just north of Minden. His landscape work captures the spirit and beauty  of the Highlands and when not in the studio painting or teaching, he can often be seen painting roadside. He is an experienced instructor and his love for painting comes across as he shares his insights to all levels of students especially beginners. He is a member of the Haliburton Studio tour and the Tour de Forest.
