Birds of British Columbia in Oils with JEAN BRADBURY

July 30, 2022 - July 31, 2022



Plan a creative arts retreat and join us for MISSA 2022, an in-person arts program on Vancouver Island!

JEAN BRADBURY will briefly discuss materials and how to paint in oils without using solvents. She will show images of her favourite wildlife artists and images of her past work. There will be a discussion of source material and how to choose a compelling photographic pose, theme and composition. The class will prepare substrates with abstract washes of colour and then paint wet on wet the first layer of bird and habitat.

Paintings will be refined as much as the student desires. “Bling” will be added such as the glint in the eyes and shadows under feathers. Class discussion will include questions such as “Bird feet – painting the sweet spot between wimpy and horrifying” and “Expression – avoiding angry bird facial expressions”.
