I recently took part in the Seymour Art Gallery’s START WITH ART exhibition. These are the pieces I submitted this year. It’s a wonderful event, and I consider myself fortunate to have been asked back again this year.
In previous years, the pieces I submitted had very hard edges, and bold blocky colour. This year I wanted a softer more gentle approach to colour, and indeed subject matter.
I love the premise behind Start With Art, that you’re never too young to begin cultivating the appreciation of art, or to own a piece you like. My love of art began at a young age, so I’m thrilled to take some small part in that process for a young person today. I hope the collectors enjoy the pieces they bought.
Thanks for reading, I love you.
Hello friend! As documented in previous posts, I have been fortunate enough to be involved with the Seymour Art Gallery‘s Start with Art exhibition in Vancouver the past few years. This past April I was fortunate enough to have my artwork as part of the show once more. Though I wasn’t able to attend in person, I am told it…
STEP BY STEP ACRYLIC PORTRAIT
Happy Sunday! Some of you might know, I’m most comfortable working in ink, but you may not know that I do also do the odd painting. This is a step by step breakdown of a painting I did of a dear friend a few years back. I was working at a recording/photo studio at the time, and it was a great opportunity to work on my photography skills with buddies after hours. One of my first shoots was with a good friend (who is also a talented actor, singer, athlete, and on and on…) who was gracious enough to donate some time for me to fool around with lights and a camera. From one of those shots, I made this painting. Thanks, Julia!
I do love working with acrylics, but rarely have time with life, and family and Illustration work, but hopefully it’s something I can do more of in the future.
Another post coming tomorrow. Thanks for reading, I love you!
