“The 6 days spent with Peter Corbett as guide was a breakthrough for me in terms of how to paint quickly and effectively outside and I discovered new techniques and new ways to paint in the studio. Peter, artist and scientist, is the perfect mentor for outdoor painting; he understands so much about the land, animals, water and atmosphere and he shares all that he knows and loves with enthusiasm and spirit. We painted in the town, at Bowron Lake, summits on the road, rivers and marshes, and clouds in the sky. We honed our field studies in the studio. We worked hard and long and it seemed like play,” said Louise Drescher of Rossland, BC of her experience at the 2017 residency.
We’re excited to share the news that our Winter Guided Residency with Peter Corbett is almost full. Please call our office on 1800 442 2787 or head here for more information or to secure your spot this coming March!
