Still Life in Oils with Sue Cowan
Sun, May 14, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Sun, May 14, 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Join Sue Cowan for a demonstration of direct painting in oil using a simple still life as subject.
Ordinary objects are so versatile to paint; you can arrange and rearrange them, experiment with lighting and try out different backgrounds with coloured paper.
No need to work from photos or exotic subjects to learn painting skills and enjoy creating paintings.
Small paintings of everyday objects are fun, quick satisfying and give endless opportunities to practice composition, colour, values, drawing and edges.
Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Coquitlam or contact them at 604‑545‑0410 to register.
