April 14 - Laurel KarJala
Exploring line, shape and colour
Exploring line, shape and colour with a FineLine applicator, brush and pen.
I will be demonstrating how I use a FineLine applicator with acrylic paint on canvas. In my search for ways to use line, colour and shape in my landscape work, I moved from coloured pencils and felt pens on paper to using acrylic paint, a brush and a metal, needle like applicator to draw and paint on canvas. I work from my photographs of Nanaimo's Buttertubs Marsh and sometimes, just for fun, I focus on making marks on canvas, just to see where they will lead me.
