Winter snow scenes offer tremendous possibilities to showcase the transparent qualities of the watercolour medium. Having a ringside seat, you will see how Gord takes a winter photo through a 5-min value sketch to a finished painting, all within an hour. He will show you how to make the snow glow with the kind of luminosity that can’t be shown in any other medium, as well as how to keep your snow shadows transparent with both warm and cool blues.

About Gord Jones

Gord is an elected member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour (CSPWC), and the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA). Gord has been drawing and painting for over 35 years and after experimenting with many different mediums such as oils, acrylics, even egg tempera, he always returned to his greatest love – transparent watercolour.

His approach is to interpret the essence of his chosen subject rather than produce a detailed likeness. He wants the viewer to enjoy the luminosity of the medium, the white of the paper shining through, and the impression of the landscape with a simplicity of washes and bold strokes.

Gord is also a member of the ECOAA, IWS, Niagara Frontier Watercolor Society, Haliburton Arts Council, and The Rail’s End Gallery in Haliburton. He participates in the Haliburton Studio Tour and select exhibitions throughout Canada and the US.

Gord is a certified Adult Educator and teaches watercolour painting in his studio, online, and at The Haliburton School of Art & Design.
