LOOSE DUTCH FLORAL ACRYLIC!
PAINTING IN THE ROUND with EILEEN MACARTHUR
FOR AGES 16+ | MAX. 10
Saturday, February 18, 2023 | 10 am – 3 pm
$130 plus HST | All materials included
Join artist Eileen MacArthur for a light and loose, guided workshop, with focus on creating a tondo floral composition using multiple found sources for inspiration and a conte transfer to get started!
Eileen will lead you in the steps to create a 2-foot diameter, original acrylic on a round MDF panel. Explore colour mixing, the figure-ground relationship, and elements of composition. During the course of the day, artists will also delve into various techniques of representational painting, loosely based in the Dutch floral tradition, and try out several brushes and methods of paint application.
All levels of experience welcome!
All materials are supplied, including tondo panel and acrylics.
Artists are encouraged to bring any specific materials (brushes, paint colours) they may wish to use or explore with Eileen.
