Painting Water with Acrylics & Peter John Reid

peter john reid's website

"Having painted in both watercolour and oil paints, the versatility of acrylic has been dominant for the last number of years. I work mostly on large canvases, for the love of the visual impact of size, which can dominate the visual field, and still allows one to get lost in the abstract of texture and details.
Born in Plymouth, England, raised in Toronto, studied at the Ontario College of Art, and for the last twenty-some years residing in rural Grey County in the heart of Niagara Escarpment country has provided me with a wealth of inspiration. My driving force has always been a need to create, in all mediums: wood, stone, plastic, and metal, but mostly in paint. It is much like hunger – the longer it goes without expression, the greater the outpouring of creative energy. My goal is to always grow as a painter, oh and, I guess, as a person as well."



The course will help dispel the belief that water is one of the hardest subjects to paint. You will learn to capture the varying energies of water - from the tranquil to the rushing flow of a cascade - by truly seeing the subject, the colours and the various techniques you can use. Mornings will be spent learning the ebb and flow of water while the afternoons will be spent working on your own projects with individual assistance.
