We had three MVAL members all demonstrating at once for a special holiday experience! Carmen Daugherty, Dilmit Singh, and Mary Archibald. Each artist introduced themselves and the project and tools they would use.
Dilmit went second and painted a lovely painting of a rich red pot in a lush green setting. Dilmit is a self-taught artist who derives inspiration from her natural surroundings. She paints in both oil and watercolors and strives to capture light, shade and shadow. Watercolor allows her to be loose, airy and sketchy and the buttery spread of oil color gives her the freedom to capture the robustness of people, places and things.
Carmen went third and showed us the stages she goes through to create beautiful poinsettia greeting cards using negative painting. She painted multiple beautiful watercolor poinsettia Christmas cards and demonstrated the stages of using negative painting technique and how to add lettering using Posca Pens.
