I spent my Saturday at the PAINTING BIG, PAINTING FEARLESS workshop led by Samantha daSilva at the Calgary School of Art and it was fabulous. So out of my element, working only with a roller and squeezing paint directly onto my canvas. The bottom two canvases (and detail photos) are the pieces I worked on, both measuring 36x48 inches and though I'm not certain if they are done or just in progress, I do know that they will remain abstract.
It was fun layering colour and texture, playing with modeling paste and glass bead gel media. Sam has such an interesting process that it was as much fun to watch as to try. And she was such a lovely teacher, sharing her technique while encouraging everyone to experiment and play. Definitely recommend a workshop by her.
