The Painter’s Essential Landscape Class – Negative Painting
Conjure the spirit of the landscape in this innovative program. Discover secrets and strategies for interpreting and simplifying the landscape as you build your painting from the ground up with overlapping bands and interlocking shapes.
Learn negative painting strategies and the successful sequencing of opaque and transparent glazes to create a luxurious patina and gentle glow in your work.
Explore brushwork techniques for creating textures and subtle transitions of delicate tints and muted hues and how to layer lost and found edges to suggest windswept meadows and distant trees. Investigate where to use captured negatives and establish minimal hard edges to gradually bring your work into soft focus.
Whether you work on location, from your imagination or photos, you will be amazed by this elegant, alternative method of creating the landscape.

The Painted CROW/ RAVEN – Stylized
Handsome, dark and smart – crows make ideal subject matter for contemporary, stylized painting when building with layers and blocks of shapes. We begin with a experimental underpainting to create the texture and color of darks feathers. The basic bird shape will emerge by negative painting techniques with layers of transparent and opaque acrylic. Add final embellishments and details with paint and colored pencil to give your crow personality!
Receive handouts about structure, proportions and placement of forms. Bring crow photos or use the resource material and handouts provided.

The Painted Raven – Stylized – Negative Painting With Acrylic

Ravens make ideal models for creating caricatures! The large strong beak, small eyes and dramatic poses are ideal features to exaggerate giving your bird a cantankerous attitude or comedic appearance!

We begin with a quick underpainting to establish the texture of feathers to animate the surface. The basic bird shape will emerge with negative painting layers of transparent and opaque acrylic. Emphasis will be on contrasting light and dark with a palette of black, white and one bold color. Final decorative embellishments balance the design and enhance the entertainment factor.

Receive handouts for structure, proportions and placement of forms. Bring raven photos or use the class resource material.

COST $350. Per person

TRILOGY

THREE YEARS IN THE MAKING
by ALISON STOREY, HELENE LAROUCHE and JUANITA GLENN

GALLERY AT THE GUILD
111 Queen St
Charlottetown, PEI

Art Exhibition and sale May 29th to June 9th

This Art Exhibition is a visual journey of three PEI women that are close friends, and have diverse backgrounds but similar interests. This Exhibition features over 75 chosen works that relate both directly to the Island, and our own individual journey through life. We each have our own distinctive styles to convey our message to the viewers. Some artworks are scenes of the Island to depict its beauty, some imaginative and dreamlike to interest the free thinker, and some more realistic of life around us. The art works have been completed in the last three years, and our goal in life is to inspire others.

ARTIST`S STATEMENTS
Alison Storey
I work in Pastel throughout the summer months while drawing on location and work on new Woodcuts or Lino cuts (Printmaking art) in the winters. The Pastel art work for this exhibition is from three years of summer afternoons spent with other senior Artists at various locations on the Island. I draw or paint what is around me, but I do have a good imagination and love to experiment , and get messy.

Helene LaRouche
My style is strong with dreamlike tendencies and colours I love.I work in many different mediums; amongst them are: Silk painting with French dyes, Enamels, Acrylics, and Oils with Palette knife. I work mainly in plein air, when the weather takes me out of my studio. Every painting is like a story unfolding where I am able to share some meaning of my life with others. In words”I find painting a form of meditation, where I am very much in the present, but yet in another world.”

Juanita Glenn
I paint from my love of life. My acrylics are imaginative and inspired by my interests in colour, mood, folklore and looking beyond the ordinary. My primary interests are Acrylics, Mixed media, and Oils. I also enjoy using natural components from nature such as bark or seaweed in my interpretive pieces.
