3 day Plein Air workshop
June 09-11 – 2017
In this 3 day workshop Ron Hedrick will start the day with a demo and discussion in the morning followed by time to paint in the afternoon.
There will be a variety of painting sessions such as step by step painting with the artist and individual attention will be given to each student.
Composition, colour theory and values as well as how to achieve bright colours and confident application.
We will work with a flexible schedule, sometimes taking longer breaks during the day to capture evening light later in the day but each day will contain at least 6 hours of instruction and painting time.
This Plein Air painting workshop is open and suitable to all levels of artists.
Ron Hedrick was born in Vancouver B.C. In 1968 Ron took his first painting instruction from Karl Wood, but it was in 1981 while living in Kamloops B.C. that he took up painting with a passion. Surrounded by spectacular hues and rolling landscapes, he began to focus on this magnificent world we sometimes take for granted.
Well established and seasoned, with many years of painting and teaching, he has left his mark in the Canadian art scene and continues to paint with the same enthusiasm and passion as his early Kamloops years.
“After many years of painting, I feel good about where I am as an artist at this point in time. I am happy with my work, yet I have this continuous urge to reach out, try new ideas, and continue to grow as an artist””.Hedrick’s paintings are easily recognizable with their bright sunlit colours and spontaneous and confident brushwork.
Hedrick has been teaching out of his studio for the last 12 years.
Hedrick’s oils can be seen at galleries representing his work; Gainsborough,Calgary, Rendezvous art gallery,Vancouver, Hampton Gallery,Kamloops, Hambleton Gallery,Kelowna and Evalyn Dunn Gallery, New Jersey as well as google search.
Ron’s works are in corporate and private collections in Europe, Asia, Middle East as well as the United States and Canada.
Ron and his wife Sandy have recently moved to Kelowna, where he is looking forward to being inspired by the magnificent vistas and flavours of the local area and beginning a new chapter in his life.
