Using simple, quick pencil drawings based on shapes from nature (flowers, buds and leaves), participants will design a basic composition on canvas. Then, through a series of layers that include acrylic washes made with diluted medium, the use of various unconventional materials and, lastly, thicker opaque paint, they will create an abstracted floral painting. This workshop explores a range of materials, brush sizes and thicknesses of paint as well as contrasts in temperature, tone, and mark making.
Corre Alice was born on the west coast and is a full time abstract and semi abstract artist living in Cumberland B.C. She has raised sons, grown gardens and built houses. Her oil and acrylic paintings may be seen in galleries in Nelson, Salt Spring Island and Victoria. Her main inspiration the last few years have been derived from nature. By using layers of information and a variety of materials she creates depth and interest.
