Birds of British Columbia in Oils

Birds of British Columbia in Oils

Day 1: Jean will briefly discuss materials and how to paint in oils without using solvents. She will show images of her favourite wildlife artists and images of her past work. There will be a discussion of source material and how to choose a compelling photographic pose, theme and composition. The class will prepare substrates with abstract washes of colour and then paint wet on wet the first layer of bird and habitat.

Day 2: You will apply a second and final layer of paint including areas of glaze. Paintings will be refined as much as the student desires. “Bling” will be added such as the glint in the eyes and shadows under feathers. Class discussion will include questions such as “Bird feet – painting the sweet spot between wimpy and horrifying” and “Expression – avoiding angry bird facial expressions”.

COVID – 19: As we have seen, the pandemic is constantly changing as are the health and safety precautions mandated by Health Canada. The MISSA Summer Program brings people together in classrooms, dining halls, accommodation rooms and other communal areas and we must ensure the protection and safety of all participants. All MISSA instructors are required to be fully vaccinated and, in order to ensure the safety of everyone on campus, we are asking that student participants also be fully vaccinated. Thank you for your cooperation.
