ART SHOW 2020
My first art show in over 18 years and my first solo art show. Not including student art shows, this is technically my fourth art show. All of the art in my show was rendered between September 2019 and February 2020, a total of the 30 pieces, with the exception of one 9x12-inch acrylic painting on canvas board. The art shown on this page is just a small sampling of the 30 pieces I created for my art show.
"An Eye on Nature" art show which ran at the MAC Gallery (Rock Family Art Gallery) in Mission, BC, Canada; February 11-29th, 2020.
The art show poster I designed for my art show at the MAC gallery in Mission, BC. The painting in this poster is my "Hicks Lake No1", which I rendered in October, 2019, 5.7x8.5-inches using acrylics with ink on watercolour paper. The final poster size: 7.5x11 inches. I also created a 5x7-inch mailer version of this poster on 100lb card stock.
MY COLOUR PALLET
When I paint, I primarily (almost exclusively) use 5 colours and these are: Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Red, Phthalo Blue, Titanium White, and Black. I have always mixed the colours I need rather than having to rely on premixed paints. This is how I was originally taught in Fine Art School and it just became a habit. I find mixing colours on the fly faster and less disruptive than stopping to look for a specific tube of paint hiding somewhere in my art box. Mixing my own colours helps me stay focused on my artwork.
