Did you miss In the Zone with Cyn Gagen and Robi Cohen tonight? You can watch the replay here:
So many wonderful artists, such a huge country and so little time...
My focus was on The Group of Seven because they are best known for their great Canadian landscapes. They were strongly influenced by the French Impressionism of the late 1800's and this is evident is works like
|Frank H. Johnston|
Serenity Lake of the Woods, 1922
Winter Charlevoix County, 1932-33
They spent most of their time in Ontario, but did travel to Quebec, Nova Scotia, and the Arctic. They were the first non-native artists to depict the Arctic.
My first demo was influenced by the beautiful landscapes of these painters and the beautiful watercolours.
I used an accordion fold on my cardstock and staggered the images. I painted on 140 lb cold press paper and used Winsor Newton paints. To see how I made the folds, watch the show!
And then, influenced by the works of art: Mirror Lake and Maligne Lake, we made our own Mirror Lake
Maligne Lake, Jasper Park
Using OPI Nicole Nail Polish Sticks, I showed how to do a 'quickie' mirror lake.
Thank you to everyone who came to the show tonight and congratulations to Christine, Genelle, and Dale on your prize winnings!!!!
Next week's theme on In the Zone, in celebration of July the Fourth, we will feature American Art!!
