Plein Air Dynamo is a 'rain or shine’ plein air workshop that’ll get you out, improve your practice and will make you fall in love with the original form of landscape art.
Charlie will share with you what he looks for when arriving at a location to paint, his process and steps to create an exciting painting on location. He will demo each day and will assist you in your own painting. His infectious passion for painting the landscape will undoubtedly get you going!
We will paint on a different location each day anywhere from the Saanich Peninsula to Sooke. A reality of painting outdoors is dealing with weather conditions among other things and we will paint “rain or shine”!
Charlie Easton comes from a family of British artists. He moved to Canada in 2006 and immediately fell in love with the same scenery that inspired many of the Group of Seven. A prolific painter of landscapes and seascapes in both oils and acrylics, Charlie is represented by galleries across North America and Europe where he regularly has solo exhibitions of his work.
He is a Senior Signature Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (SFCA) and has studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and at Emily Carr University. His teaching is now in demand and this year he will be on the faculty at the Plein Air Convention in Denver, Colorado.
Charlie has a studio in Vancouver, but his first love is painting on location in BC, Alberta, California and beyond. He has had residencies in Haida Gwaii, with The Haida Nation and Parks Canada, in Banff and in Whistler.
