April 21 - May 3 2009 - Federation Still Life Show

Watercolor Seashells Still Life
Watercolor Seashells Still Life
Two of my recent paintings have been chosen for the Still Life show at the Federation of Canadian Artists gallery on Granville Island from April 21 - May 3, 2009. The first painting, Shell Trio is the painting I did for the demo at the Art Focus Group and the other painting chosen is Shell Dance. I painted both from a collection of shells that I bought from a home decorating store and plan to paint more as I really like the different textures and shapes in each shell & sponge. I have been using more opaque paints which is very new for me as I generally use mostly transparent pigments so it is fun to see all the different possibilites with each pigment.
