August 30, 2017 – Please note: Both of these demonstrations are now full and no further registration will be taken. Thank you for your interest!

A convincing portrayal of depth, mass, and volume helps create a satisfying and powerful figurative oil painting.

Join Nicole for a demonstration and discussion while she works on a large-scale figurative portrait in oil. The demo will explore topics such as colour temperature relationships as they relate to value changes, considerations when working from a photo reference, and paint application and brushwork, as well as any topics that come up in participant questions.

Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Victoria or contact them at 250‑386‑8133 or toll free 1‑800‑524‑6555 to register.


Figurative oil painter Nicole Sleeth merges a love of classical tradition with post-contemporary figurative subjects, and incorporates a focus on the physical aspect of paint to communicate and connect. Her current work focuses on large scale depictions of nude women who engage and actively challenge the viewer, holding them accountable for their stare and ultimately questioning the relationship between the viewer and the viewed. Working with careful attention to paint application, Nicole brings a physicality to her work that toys with the line between viewing a painting and connecting with another human. Born in Kingston, ON and trained in Ottawa and New York City, Nicole established a studio atelier in Vancouver from 2011-2014. Presently, she lives, teaches, and works in Victoria BC.
