Started doing short trip workshops for art groups in the Gulf Islands, Port Alberni, Lantzville, Duncan, Maple Bay and many other small communities on Vancouver Island. 1990 - 1999 Continued to expand workshop tour and taught regular adult watercolour classes in Victoria. Sold originals through several galleries on the Island and in Vancouver. Worked with various architects and developers to provide paintings from sets of plans. These were used mainly for getting approvals prior to construction, but the painting experience was a springboard to many watercolour cityscapes. These paintings along with seascapes began selling well in galleries and his first lithograph reproduction was printed in 1992. This image of Victoria’s Inner Harbour was produced as a poster and also an art card. The poster has since sold over ten thousand units. Several other images were produced as posters, prints, limited editions and cards during this time including Butchart Gardens, the Parliamen buildings and Empress hotel. Meanwhile, much of Grant's original work was in the form of commissions. This sudden explosion of architectural images began attracting people who wanted paintings of their homes. Other popular commissions were paintings of churches, given as weddding gifts to those being married or their families. Grant has had several one man shows featuring original nude figure work. There are several collectors who specifically wait for this work. Others are collectors of seascapes and wait for exhibits featuring that subject. 1999 - 2004 In October of ‘99 Grant bought a computer. This decision resulted from having seen some remarkably good quality done on a PC and ink jet printer. This would allow him to create brochures and other advertising material as well as support documents for workshops, giving students graphic print outs to take home. Soon the computer would become a major player in his art world. He made his own web site. He accompanied his friend Jack Reid, instructing a workshop for two weeks in Newfoundland, a direct result of computer generated brochures and internet contact. He has made four eBooks and is in the early stages of developing this area of teaching. He is currently working with the promotional department of one of the major five star hotels here, hosting workshops for artists travelling to Victoria.|
