Pouring Watercolors with Leslie Redhead

Location: 
Granville Island
Fri, February 15, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Fri, February 15, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

February 15, 2019 – Please note: This demonstration is full and no further registration will be taken. Thank you for your interest!

Discover the excitement and joy of pouring liquid colour!

Leslie will show how she creates works of art through pouring paint onto paper. The freedom that comes from flowing watercolour pigments will push the boundaries of colour, contrast, and light. By simplifying shapes and using a resist, paint will be poured layer upon layer. These layers of transparent colour will create a painting that glows.

Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Granville Island or contact them at 604‑736‑7028 to register.
