Workshop Description

 

     “The Day’s End” by Bonnie Steinberg

 

Come and explore how light, design and colour can put passion in composition!  Our subject matter will include a (SIMPLE) street scene ,or iconic laneway, complete with landscape elements, architectural elements and other details. Ontario and its beautiful street scapes, will provide our inspiration. The figure in watercolour will also be explored so that its incorporation will complete a visual story.  Participants will explore “how” to paint great greens, deep violets and other wonderful hues.  Some new and some old and proven techniques will be taught and demonstrated to provide a purposeful aim for participants. Atmospheric perspective through colour, and linear perspective will also be explored! Participants will marvel at the result…luminous and passionate paintings!
