Art Focus Demo with Lalita Hamill
November 25, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - December 30, 2020 @ 7:00 pm PSTFree
“Composing Studies in Charcoal” on-line at artfocusartistsassociation.com
Lalita will show you how she uses powdered charcoal to plan out her more complex paintings. She draws these studies to determine the composition, edges, mark-making, and overall ‘feel’ or ‘mood’. One of the key benefits of using powdered charcoal is in developing ones’ painterly touch. With practice, this sensitivity to subtleness and effective composition will translate into your paintings. Supplies are minimal; all drawings will be done on Canson charcoal paper, using General’s powdered charcoal, an artist’s chamois and a kneadable eraser.
Lalita is a sought-after instructor and juror who specializes in oil painting, art assessment and virtual reality. She studied traditional painting methods from classically trained instructors at the Vancouver Academy of Art for four years. Lalita is a Signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, and an Associate Member of Oil Painters of America.
