Join us for this fun in-person event happening simultaneously at all our Opus locations and gain insight into why our Opus Ambassadors consider certain colours essential to their art practice.  

There will be an Opus Ambassador in store to talk to you about colour mixing, glazing and fun colourful experimentations.  Stop by to gain practical colour advice and witness professional artist materials at work. 

 

"For my OPUS Acrylic Essentials set, I chose Prussian Blue because it has been stuck in my mind since I first learned how to play with cyanotype sun-printing this summer. Alizarin Crimson reminds me of wet Arbutus bark, and Quinacridone Gold is like the cast of yellow that everything takes on near sunset, at the golden hour. I knew that a warm yellow like Quinacridone Gold and a cool red like Alizarin Crimson would mix well with each other and with Prussian Blue to create some amazing jewel tone secondary colours, especially when layered in acrylic glazes. When all three are used together in various combinations they make some beautiful rich browns and greys."

Artist Bio: 

Jen Burgess is an artist inspired by nature and a current staff member of OPUS Victoria. Coming from a background in scientific illustration, she is familiar with a wide range of media and techniques. However, she has lately been loosening the bonds of tight figurative perfectionism to enjoy art as more expressive play and trust her intuitive process. When she is not at OPUS she is creating her own artworks, or mentoring artists and creatives online through coaching, consultation, or instruction.
