Abstract from Reality: Transformational Art Making with Donna Eichel

Sat, November 18, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Sat, November 18, 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

November 8, 2017– Please note: Both of these demonstrations are now full and no further registration will be taken. Thank you for your interest!

Join Donna as she demonstrates her process of taking an image from the real world and transform it through the application of, imagination, technique, and improvisation.

Techniques she will demonstrate include sketching from a photo, selecting a color palette, then applying and subtracting oil paint on selected surfaces using various tools. The results are a variety of visual explorations and outcomes which, it is hoped, lead to some surprise and serendipity. This is more about the search than using a recipe.

As a result of this demonstration Donna hopes the viewer will grasp the “Alchemy” inherent in the relationship between the artist and the liquid paint.

Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Victoria or contact them at 250‑386‑8133 or toll free 1‑800‑524‑6555 to register.
