Sunday Sessions: Painting with Daphne Mennell
February 28 @ 12:00 pm
Yukon’s celebrated artist, Daphne Mennell, will be at Boréale for this special one day water painting retreat. Spend time with your creative side, surrounded by beautiful original artworks and the magnificent Seven Sisters mountain range.
This afternoon course is an introduction to simple landscape painting in watercolours. You will go home with one or two finished small watercolour landscape sketches. To start you off, I will guide you through a simple drawing exercise to help focus your attention and quickly teach you something about how to “see” artistically. This step aids us in seeing “composition” more easily.
We will then go over the photo you have brought to paint, or you can also choose to do the scene outside the window. We will go over what can make a good composition. Then step by step I will demonstrate some of the techniques you can incorporate into your painting.
You will need to bring:
– clothes you don’t mind getting paint on, an apron can help as well.
– A few photos of some scene you might like to try painting
– A sense of humour!
