Starting with weekend life drawing, then on to oil, watercolor, ink and more - thirty years have gone by and the pull is stronger than ever for me. I am fascinated with dimensions - how can I manipulate the mat opening or canvas dimension to create a second layer, or third, or more? I have never much been bothered about what I paint - more about how. I am in love with the gentle elegance of watercolor, yet also drawn to the rich color and texture of acrylic. The longer I paint - the more I discover to learn.
Timms is one of the finest plein air painters in the world. Her ability to clearly demonstrate and her evident joy in painting will inspire and encourage you. All water media are welcome. If the weather doesn't co-operate, we will work in studio. Workshops and seminars over the years with numerous painters have helped her move forward in this process, of course, but in the main she considers herself self-taught. After many years of life drawing, she found her passion for painting with traditional oils on canvas.
Quadra Island Studio tour, Quadra Island Garden tour, kayaking, canoeing, wild-life viewing by land or by sea, hiking-we have several trails nearby.
Located on beautiful Quadra Island, surrounded by woodland acreage and deer near beaches and ferry, the studio is very comfortable. Eight people can work in the studio and the workshops have been great for all concerned. Time in the studio is available to artists that want to come and work when they stay in the accommodation for a small fee. A bright and comfortable bed and breakfast retreat!
- 5 days instruction
