Meet Marc Grandbois
Oil | Acrylic | Watercolor
Painting is above all an inner journey.
In today’s world, this definition is often forgotten.
Yet this is what distinguishes the artist from the maker of image as a product. The various external constraints related to the profession sometimes create obstacles to this journey by disturbing the flow of true creative energy.
Also, just like the musician, the filmmaker or the dancer, the painter cannot really evolve without mastering certain technical bases. The artistic style should not be the result of a forced research but rather something that develops naturally through the gradual questioning of previously mastered techniques. This process then becomes more creative and takes the personal pictorial language to another level. From there starts the most important quest, the perfect symbiosis between our emotions, our outlook on the world and our ability to express them authentically with less possible filters.
My teaching method reflects this concept where technique is ultimately put at the service of candor and feeling.
Nature has been my favorite subject for 25 years and I will never get tired of it. An inexhaustible source of inspiration that spans the ages and transcends all schools of painting.
All these years of observing the landscape and painting it have made me realize so much about its dizzying complexity and developed in me the desire to express more than just its inherent beauty.
As Cézanne said: Painting from nature is not copying the objective, it is realizing our sensations.
Meet Charlie Easton
Oil | Acrylic
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 in 2021 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.
He is a proud brand ambassador for the Canadian outdoor brand MEC who help him get to the remotest places to paint, and keep him dry.
