SIDNEY — Peninsula Gallery will host watercolour artist Sandhu Singh this Saturday, March 16 from 1 to 4 p.m. as he demonstrates his technique in water colour painting.
Born in India, Singh immigrated to Canada in 1990. In 2002, he graduated from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Science in nursing.
Always interested in art, he took a watercolour painting course in 2004 that changed his life. In 2009, he became an active member in the Federation of Canadian Artists and decided to dedicate himself to fully developing his artistic talent.
Watercolour is a complex and challenging medium and the softness and atmospheric qualities are what appeal to Singh.
“It reminds me to let go and just be. When I paint, I become fearless, which allows me to look at life from a different perspective,” he said.
With subjects ranging from city scenes to marinas, landscapes and lone figures, Singh relishes each opportunity to render life’s unique moments.
Singh has participated in shows in Canada, the U.S.A. and Australia and in 2011, he won the “Best in Show” award at the Sidney Fine Art Show.
