Times are changing

Spring is coming and there will be a lot of new things in nature to draw from.  Side field trips to the Canadian Badlands will include photography day trips, sketching trips and learning to get this rugged landscape on canvas or paper.  Some evenings will be spent watching the sun go down and capturing the different shades in the night sky as the sun disappears on the horizon.

Old buildings, corrals and wooden fences also add to the atmosphere to a painting.  This will be taught using perspective in the drawings.

We will also take in trips to Lake Newell which is nearby and do some photography, capturing the boats, waves on the water, reflections and people just playing in the sand.  The sunsets on the water are phenomenal.

Another beautiful and site well worth taking in is the Bassano Dam, which was built in the early 1900’s.  This is a lesson in architectural drawing and is well worth the effort.

There is a working ranch with cattle and old corrals not far from the Artist Retreat, which will be a point of interest on a day trip.  I always have my camera handy upon taking trips there.

There will never be a dull moment and there will be lots to learn.
