What: Henry Tian paints Jessica Steponaitis: 3 hour portrait painting demo (free event)
When: Saturday, October 5, 2-5pm
Where: Art 1274 Hollis, Halifax
Henry Tian is an emerging Halifax-based oil painter who will be having a free live demonstration, painting in the alla prima tradition (also known as direct painting, wet-into-wet painting).
He will be painting from a photo reference he took of Jessica Steponaitis (see image below), an outstanding rug-hooker and a fellow artist at the gallery. Jessica is working in the gallery that day so you will get to meet her as well! Henry has done a few paintings of Jessica in the past and each one is a new challenge.
Come and watch how Henry problem-solves the visual puzzle and arrive at a spot-on likeness of Jessica. Henry is more than happy to share his technique and knowledge of painting for anyone interested.
No registration required, just drop in, enjoy the demo, and talk art! If you missed the previous ones, don’t miss this one!
Hope to see you at the gallery, cheers!
Henry Tian, figurative artist based in Halifax, NS.
