SUCCESS - FCA PLEIN AIR RETREAT


TOM SHARDLOW

This summer, once again, I was part of FCA's Annual Plein Air Retreat team. We held the retreat at Manning Park with about 50 participants painting for the five-day event.

I visited the park ahead of time to help select suitable painting sites and organize accommodation.

It was a privilege to be invited to join the discussion panel with the instructors for the Q & A evening session and to paint during the "Show Off" event with a fine group of established artists.

Each had the same reference photo of an alpine landscape and were allotted one and a half hours to complete the painting.

Thankfully, I didn’t embarrass myself in front of the many students watching and even better, sold the demo painting.

Our Retreat Team is already searching for next year’s location and we have begun the selection process for instructors. I look forward to seeing Nanaimo Chapter members at the 2019 Plein Air Retreat.
