River Ridge Lodge in Martins River (near Mahone Bay), NS

Bunkie on River Ridge Lodge property

Get ready to be immersed in colour for the day, as local Artist, Gary Selig, shares his passion for watercolours with you. This hands-on introduction to watercolours will be an unforgettable experience. 

The Artist will share some of the basics of composition and paint handling as well as some surprising “don’ts” to help prepare you for your own creation. 

We will supply all tools and materials needed as part of a take-home kit. No prior knowledge or skill is required.  

The day will excite all your senses, as you feast on a delicious locally-inspired lunch, complements of Ma Bell’s Country Condiments & Wheels on Meals, while you watch Gary demonstrate how he paints a landscape. 

The event will be Plein Air and inside a cozy barn, situated on the beautiful rolling hills and historic property of River Ridge Lodge.

About the Artist: Gary Selig took up the brush in 2018 to explore watercolours and acrylics to create wildlife and landscape images as well as figurative works and portraits. He now spends much of his time in his home studio. Before becoming an artist himself, he had a 30-year career in museum and gallery management after a brief stint as an illustrator-designer.
