Landscape and Animal – Focus on Brushwork
New date due to Covid 19 restrictions (previously 2020) – registrations are open now!
June 4 – 6, 2021
Anita McComas, is a Kelowna based painter known for here abstracted impressionistic style. Her subject matter varies, but is mainly split between wildlife and landscapes. Water is a consistent theme in much of her work as she is inspired by the dance of light on water and the creative possibilities that reflections can have in a piece. Her style has been developed to play on imperfection and the unexpected. Color plays an important part in her pieces, and is a big part of what you will take away from this class, the freedom to use non-traditional colors to achieve dynamic paintings.
This acrylic painting class will be about building on a base of traditional painting techniques, then taking creative license to begin to focus on expression rather than realism. The workshop is designed to explore brushstrokes, apply unexpected color, and allow the creative to overpower the technical.
Expect to have fun and experiment with color mixing and acrylic glazing techniques. We will complete three to four paintings during this workshop
