November 26th I will be doing two presentations at OPUS Kelowna on Mastering Perspective in Your Landscape Painting. I will also be doing this presentation at OPUS Victoria in March and at OPUS North Vancouver and OPUS Langley in April.
Here is a copy of the PowerPoint presentation I will be giving (fully annotated!). Saves taking all those notes! Enjoy!
So this is the painting that started life as three separate demos. The topic was Negative Painting for Positive Results and I used this tree as the subject for several of the demos.
When fellow artist Carney Oudendag brought some of her paintings to my studio to be photographed, she suggested that I could combine these three into one large painting.
I was delighted with the idea because I didn't feel that any one of them stood up as individual paintings. Together, they make one great tree!
It took me some time to complete the triptych as other things kept getting in the way but I am very happy with the way this turned out.
Thanks again, Carney, for the Best Idea I Never Had!
The Okanagan provides inspiration wherever you look. I enjoy both painting on location and working in my studio. For more information contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
