Sunday, March 8 2:30 – 4:00PM
Give your paintings a vibrant, expressive start with an underpainting. The spontaneous “happenings” that occur during this process will provide your work with a path, allowing subsequent layers of paint to build visual depth and rich texture. Kit Bell will share her method of starting her paintings with a loose, colourful underpainting. She will cover various methods of progressing with the image, such as transparent, opaque, positive and negative painting using a wide variety of tools. Kit will start with a PowerPoint presentation to show finished paintings and the various stages of their development as well as provide hands-on demonstrations of her techniques.
