Tuesday June 11 (9am-1pm), Wed. June 12 (9am-1pm), and Thurs. June 13 (6-10pm).  This workshop takes place over two mornings and the subsequent evening:

Location:  Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park,  2340 Ontario St. Oakville (meet at the gazebo).  Please note the above hours intended to capture varied light conditions. These workshops are intended for traditional oil, water soluble oils and acrylics.

This workshop will guide participants through the process of outdoor painting. From how to choose a subject, to capturing its essence, Peter will demonstrate the techniques that will allow you to convey your intended message through an impactful and engaging painting. Much more than an unstructured, unguided Plein Air outing, Peter’s daily demonstrations and individual attention throughout the three sessions will grow your skills and enhance your technique. You will learn to manage the evolving morning and evening natural light over the course of these sessions, regardless of the weather.

Paints: cad red medium, cad yellow light, yellow ocher, burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, prussian blue, titanium white

About Peter Cheung

Peter is an Ontario based, multiple award-winning artist who works in oil paint and watercolour. Born in Hong Kong, he was influenced by Chinese art at an early age, although was not able to pursue it until later in life. After he moved to Canada in the late 70s, education and family commitments largely kept my artistic vigour at bay, but he never abandoned his desire to commit himself to the craft. In 2015, when circumstances permitted, Peter decided to leave the corporate world and committed to becoming a full-time artist.
 “My philosophy for creating art is simple, I committed to create artwork that emanates energy, life force and movement. My portfolio strongly reflects my love affair of sailing and the wildlife of the west coast where I went to university and worked for fifteen years. My artwork heavily influenced by my fascination of the four season colours of Ontario and the East coast.”
