Quick Underpainting, Glazing, and Impressionistic Techniques with Ken Campbell

Sun, October 15, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Sun, October 15, 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

September 20, 2017 – Please note: The 12PM demonstration is now full and no further registration will be taken. Thank you for your interest! Note: there is still room in the 2:30PM demonstration.

Ken will demonstrate techniques based on a simplified version of the Venetian Method of underpainting and glazing in oils from the 1600’s Renaissance.

He uses a simplified version of the ‘grisaille’—using black and white gesso underpainting; then glazes with transparent oils colours, and textured in semi-opaque and impasto oil strokes after the Impressionists. It is systematic and fast, and particularly useful for studio studies and large works and can be used in the field.

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.

Ken Campbell is recognized for his work as an oil painter in a number of genres including his distinctive 'canoes series'—a quintessentially Canadian theme, comprising a growing collection of works inspired by his time as a canoe guide and enthusiast. He was born in Thunder Bay, Ontario, grew up in the Peterborough area of southern Ontario, earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology with a minor in psychology from Lakehead University and today creates original paintings and drawings from his studio in Victoria, British Columbia.
