The Thompson Nicola Shuswap Chapter (TNSC) of the Canadian Federation of Artists hosted an inspiring day of art called “Passion for Painting”. The demo event is an “extra” that is delivered by the TNSC as part of the 2017 National Show being held on April 21 – April 30, 2017. The presenters/artists doing the demonstrations are also the jurors of the art show. This year there were 3 demonstrations.
Watercolourist Marney-Rose Edge demonstrated how she creates her dramatic watercolour florals. This is the floral she was recreating:
Some pics with her work in progress:
Pastel Guru Roberta Combs demonstrated the precision of pastels at getting the colors just right to be able to recreate detail reflection on a metal apple depicted in this still life.
Roberta happens to have a great sense of humour too, as she joked around as she worked on her painting.
Debbie Milner-Lively has beautiful paintings often with people within her art. She is probably most well known for her beautiful rainy day paintings. The colours and reflections are a treat to the eye.
Here Debbie shows us how to obtain some of those reflective colours depicted on a rainy day! Here’s some of her work in progress.
Overall, a great day of learning, inspiration and networking with fellow art lovers!
