July 31: Painting Demo at Sooke Fine Arts Show

I will be doing a painting demo at the Sooke Fine Arts Show on Sunday July 31 from 2:00-4:00.  The demo, “Early Stages of Figurative Oil Painting”, will center around the imprimatura (underpainting) and first pass of painting.  Topics discussed will be palette considerations, mixing colour accurately, importance of the imprimatura, considerations for the first pass/block in stage, and how to continue further.  I’ll be working on a painting that has most of the first pass done, with some imprimatura left visible.

Artist demos are included in your show admission.  Last year there was standing room only so I recommend getting there early.  Please bring your questions as this will be an interactive discussion.  Looking forward to seeing you there!
