Painting outdoors at the beach as part of my" Kootenay Life" painting project. Very happy to have had a sun shade as it was over +30. It was difficult a difficult exercise, still figuring out what to bring and what to paint. Will definitely try this again and took some great photos that day that will probably end up being part of the final paintings for exhibition.
Plein Air and Studio Painting Project
I am excited to announce I have been approved for an arts grant for which I will be painting 20 paintings from life and 20 studio paintings within the next year.
I would like to thank the Castlegar Arts Council, Columbia Basin Trust, The Kootenay Gallery and the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance for this opportunity.
I started a little sketch today and it wasn't as stressful as I expected. This experience will help me to explore values, true colors as I see them and sharpen my technique. I think I'm already broadening my skills.
I am a representational artist residing in Southern B.C, Canada. I enjoy educating and exposing people to great art and great art ideas. Thanks for reading and tell a friend about me!
