December 3: Watercolour & Ink Greeting Cards.
Inspired by the printmaking of Andy Warhol, we will use watercolour—pencil and palette—to create some seasonal images in a relaxed Pop Art format. Outlining in watercolour pencil allows control of line and shape that can be tricky in watercolour, while using palette paint allows for blends of colour that have a spontaneity for which watercolour is known. Ink pen will then be used to bring an illustrative finish to our work.
December 17: Acrylic: Winter Mountain.
Lauren Harris, as part of the Group of Seven, is one of Canada’s best known artists of the 20th Century. In this workshop, we look to the early 1930’s when Harris’ work was influenced by the Art Nouveau movement: forms were simplified, areas of colour grew larger, and white brought a glow to the work. We will paint our own mountain scene using smooth brushstrokes of blended colour to create our simplified rocks, icefields and snowy peaks.
