30 shades of Grey – 3 day workshop (Feb 1-3 2019)
“Snow isn’t white; white is not even white” - Michael Abraham
By simplifying what you look at, through finding shape, considering the five elemental forms, and using a few key tools to assess the tones and contrast and the variations within tonal ranges, you’ll be able paint images with a dynamic range of tone, and more confidently, convincingly making for a stronger graphic readability to your work whether it be landscape, portrait, still life or abstract.
Together you will explore and understand the variations in light and shade, lightness or darkness of objects and spaces, local tone and colour, and how light and atmosphere play and bounce on forms and textures to create the illusion of three-dimensionality.
Abraham's accessible approach to teaching, through discussion, demonstration and exercise will have you feeling confident about your approach to tonal values in no time. His personable approach speaks much to the appeal of his teaching style, so you'll learn and enjoy yourself thoroughly in the process.

Vancouver Mural Festival 2018
During the summer I was involved in the Vancouver Mural Festival. Using a number of drawings from the six other member artists of Phantoms in the Front Yard artist collective and my own drawings, I composed the final composition. The weather was perfect for the two weeks of steady ladder and lift work. All seven artists painted, often from early morning until nightfall, to complete this 24 x 90 foot wall! The mural is at 7th Avenue and Ontario Street.
I must say it was so fun to paint on such a large scale!
