Nature's Patterns - Acrylic - Arteast

Sept. 25 1:00 - 4:00pm
Arteast Ottawa

Hello! I am delighted that we will be painting together. I hope you will enjoy our workshop and learn loads of new ideas and techniques. The main demonstration videos will be posted here after the workshop. It takes a day or two for me to have the videos prepared and uploaded to this website, so please be patient. I am offering the videos as a bonus for you to paint along with for 30 days. Please do not share. This page is only visible to the workshop students.

Thanks to Arteast for hosting this event. 

Below you will find some reference photos, a general supply list and a few student handouts. I am preparing your workshop videos in the coming days and will post the specific colours for each project and the finished paintings as soon as they are completed, so check back again to see what we will be working on.

Before the workshop, please watch this video so you will have a head start:

Reference Photos

We will use some of these photos for inspiration and reference as we create nature's shapes and patterns. 






Here is my standard workshop supply list. I will post the specific colours that will be used in each demonstration, along with a picture of each finished project soon. You do not need to have any particular colour to learn the concepts and to create the effects that I will demonstrate. If you have a supply of acrylic paints you will most likely have a suitable substitute. 


FYI I use a 1" natural bristle brush called a Cheap Joe's Skipper. If you do not have one you can substitute a natural bristle brush can be purchased from the paint department of the hardware store
.. or use a 1" long handled brush, like this, from your kit.
