In Native American culture, because bears can walk upright, they are believed to be special and know all things. The bear is a symbol of strength and wisdom and is thought to be a representation of a deity. He is the “speaker” for the animals and for the nature of the world within which we live.

The raven is considered the bearer of magic and a harbinger of messages from the cosmos. Raven knows the mystery of life and is the “keeper of secrets” as they are linked to the void where universal secrets are kept.

Paint A Victorian Still Life with Evelyn Dunphy

This is going to be such fun to paint! Create a holiday painting that will be treasured for years. You could make cards of your painting to send to family and friends, or even small prints as gifts.

This painting is about vibrant color and how light transforms shapes. It also tells a story. It’s timeless; carrying us back to a different time. Perhaps now of all times, we are in need of a burst of energy and joy that transports us to a child’s feeling of wonder and pure enjoyment.

Students will learn to paint three dimensional form using both color and value; the texture of a satin shirt on the clown, the metallic body of the elephant and the furry coat on the donkey.

By painting the shadow on the quilt and adding some of the pattern, we will create the illusion of complexity. Telling the story without painting every detail is an essential skill of the artist.

The composition will be simplified to focus on the toys on the blue table, with just enough of the Victorian crazy quilt to set the mood.

This is another great illustration of how to paint what appears to be a very complicated scene by breaking it down into “manageable bits”. I hope you will be as excited as I am to paint this!


Here is our Reference Photo


The donkey pulling a clown in a cart is a wind up toy from 1895, a Christmas gift to a great-grandfather on Campobello Island, Canada. It still works; each time I tried to re-arrange it on a different spot on the table, it promptly started to trot away. The elephant balancing a red ball on its trunk is not quite as old, but still well on its way to becoming an antique


Here is a version that I did previously where I put the toys on a mirror.


I am really pleased to share these comments from artists in an earlier workshops:

“TOTALLY enjoyed your class….I loved your methodical and organized way of approaching painting and learned so much!!!.Hoping to take another class with you soon!!!”. Sue Colgan-Borror

“Evelyn, you are an extraordinary teacher – gifted with an ability to provide clear instruction, generous with your time and praise, clearly passionate about sharing your hard-earned expertise, and, even better, driven to ensure your students succeed. I’m also a teacher who works with adult learners and I know finding a teacher like you is akin to discovering gold. Thank you for sharing so patiently with us.”. Sharon M.

May all be well with you and your family as we learn how to live our lives during COVID. Art is a saving grace and I’m thankful for it every day. I’d love to share it with you

Remember, just go to Book A V.I.E.W. to register for this new workshop.

Affectionately,

Evelyn
