Colourful Acrylic Portraiture with Laura Bonnie

Sun, July 22, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Sun, July 22, 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Laura will guide participants through her creative process, from ideation, sketching and thumb-nailing through to creating colourful and vibrant acrylic paintings.

Inventive use of photo reference, planning of colour palettes, and even preparation for doing figurative live painting will be discussed. In the main part of her demonstration Laura will focus on taking a painting from a roughly drawn state towards a more finished acrylic work, discussing technique and theme throughout.

Space is limited and registration is required.

Laura is a painter and freelance illustrator (BFA Illustration, Emily Carr University). Her work takes a whimsical approach to figurative painting. Her use of simple subject matter pairs with satirical themes of symbolism, ritual and culture. Gallery work, portrait commissions, illustration projects and live painting events are all frequent and ongoing parts of her creative practice. Frequent subjects include animals, the fantastical, story scenes, portraits and all manner of dream imagery.
