Angie with Pine and River painting
It has already been a busy winter.  Penticton artist, Angie Roth McIntosh is continuing her exhibit,Angie and Husband Rob at her studio gallery winter exhibit "Around the World in Paint" until March.  Come and visit her gallery at 3961 Lakeside Rd. Penticton, BC, Canada.  To avoid disappointment it is best if you contact Angie for an appointment to make sure she is in the studio.

McIntosh has been continuing to work with artists in acrylics through the Okanagan School of the Arts Studio in the garage at Leir House Penticton.  Wednesday afternoon drop in painting sessions will continue from 3-6 pm and several weekend workshops have been planned to get other artists working in acrylics using a very simple technique of underpainting a value study and then laying in exciting colour as demonstrated in Angie's painting lesson number 3.    Angie's been working on a painting
Samarpan and Jane at Okanagan School of Arts Studio of the SS Sicamous.  You'll have to check back to see the painting when it is finished.  What is Early stage french scenereally great is that you can come and paint and you can mess up the School of the Arts Studio and not your house and you can even use their materials for a very reasonable drop in fee.  You can see the wonderful work that Samarpan and Jane have done.  Also, those of you who are unable to get More on the boat and people now in the workto Victoria for Brian Simon's fantastic acrylic course can join Angie through the Okanagan School of the Arts for an acrylic painting weekend several times in the next year--you don't even have to have any supplies or previous experience and you will have alot of fun!  Contact the School of the Arts to sign up.  Next acrylic workshop is the first weekend in March in Penticton.  Those up north will probably have a chance to paint with Angie in Stewart the third week in March when she will be in Stewart.  Contact Angie to sign up for that and there will be some classes in watercolours.  Angie is hoping to be out to Prince Rupert to paint in late February and Stewart the last two weeks in March.

Victoria November 2008

Painting with Brian Simons
Last November, several of us from Penticton Brian Simons demo in acrylicsheaded down to Victoria to paint again with inspiring artist Brian Simons.    He has this great method of squinting at your image to make sure you get the main tonal values for yourAnother Painting by Brian Simons image and doing an underpainting in burnt sienna.  This is likely a method often used by the Group of Seven, who are some of McIntosh's most favourite painters.  See here a CBC video on Frederick H. Varley. One of Angie's teachers Artist Brian Simons leading workshopin grade 5 at Central Elementary School in Kelowna, showed the class pictures of the works by the Group of Seven and said that she was the granddaughter of  FH Varley--a connection to the famous artist that made quite an impression on Angie, even back when she was only 10 years old, a connection Angie has been trying to verify recently with relatives of FH Varley. Back to technique--this burnt sienna layer gives you your midtone layer. You then lift off your highlight with a damp flannel rag and you get the lightest light areas.  Then you glaze in the darks. Once you are happy with the structure of your underpainting you Kelsey doing an underpainting and first dark layerstart laying the lovely local colour working your way up to the lightest colours.  If things are still looking good then you add your finishing details.  It is a wonderful method of painting andMelissa's painting of Apex Brian is successful at getting even beginners to complete a painting during the weekend. Friend April's finished workMija and her daughter who have never painted in acrylics came down for the workshop and finished some beautiful pieces. If you can get to Victoria you should take one of Brian's workshops which Mija painting in Victoriahe holds monthly.  Check out his website here.  If you can't leave the Okanagan, Angie is going to lead several weekend worshops for the Okanagan School of the Arts during this year Angie's Acrylic Street Scene Hyder Alaskato teach even beginners this method. Contact the Okanagan School of the Arts to register. To the left is a street scene by Angie.  Click here to see some of Angie's acrylics.  Click here to see a demo of Angie painting in Acrylics.

MEADOWLARK FESTIVAL PENTICTON:Last spring after a busy time painting in Mexico, and journeying up Vancouver Island and through the Inside passage to Prince Rupert and Stewart, Angie worked on acrylics and watercolours and painted with Stewart artists for a few days.   Angie led a plein-aire paint out May 17th, 2008 at the Meadowlark Festival organized by OSCA in the South Okanagan.  She was delighted that ecoligist, writer, and philosopher Don Gayton agreed to explain the habitat, biology and ecology of the region to the group of ten artists who went to paint on the Okanagan River in BC.  The group was interested in hearing about the projects to restore the sockeye salmon to Skaha Lake and to return some of the river to a more natural state.  Okanagan River and McIntyrer BluffHere is an acrylic painting of the location that they painted at with the Meadowlark group which is the only remaining natural  section  of Okanagan River left where salmon can spawn in the sandy river beds. While this painting is gone now, if you like the image please contact Angie for notecards. Tragically the river was channelized and dyked in the 1950's.   Look at some of the paintings  of this region.   Artists wishing to help protect the fragile Okanagan habitat are asked to join Angie to discuss organizing a paintout during the 2009 Meadowlark Festival. For more information  contact Angie.

Artist Angie McIntosh has created a simple rustic painting studio in an old house in Stewart BC which is near some of the most scenic painting locations of Western Canada and  Alaska, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  In the summer of 2008 artists from all around gathered together to paint in this amazing inspiring location and join McIntosh for a painting retreat.   It is wonderful to be in the north in the summer and early fall to paint. If you wish to participate next year contact McIntosh .  Remember the wonderful old days when Group of Seven artists inspired each other on painting trips to the Canadian countreyside?  Angie was also inspired by walking through Renoir's home in southern France. The comraderie and inspiration felt and created by the artists who met at Renoir's home must have been amazing.  Seeing the art works left in the rooms by his artist friends who would visit and paint moved her and so she is trying to create a similar environment right here in northern BC.  Click here to learn about joining McIntosh as an artist in residence at her art retreat in Stewart, BC, in northern Canada, minutes from Alaska.  Please note that the Art Retreat of the North is not available for commercial rental or as a B&B--it is Angie's place of art and creativity.  If you wish to work there or join other artists there you must contact Angie first.  Email or phone in Canada 250 809-7932.
