Service Description

Date & Time: Saturday, October 26, 2024, 10:00 - 4:00 PM Sunday, October 27, 2024, 10:00 - 4:00 PM Mediums: Oil or Acrylic Instructor: Jonn Einerssen Location: 7160 Fisher St SE. Calgary. (Swinton's Art Supplies) The focus of this workshop is on landscape composition and colour. You will create oil or acrylic (your choice) paintings of prairies, foothills, and seascapes distinguished by a harmonious play of light and colour in a bold and realistic style. Jonn Einerssen‘s paintings are distinguished by force and beauty, reflecting the artist’s powerful vision and a philosophical, spiritual approach to his art. “Skies, the prairies, and the ocean all provide unlimited scope for communicating what I feel…In these subjects, the power of nature rules.” The big skies are always dominant over Einerssen’s other love, the prairies, providing a challenging diversion from seascapes. “I see these natural elements as abstracts which man cannot control. Man can simply become a participant, adapting to their seasons and rhythms.” Jonn Einerssen works almost exclusively in oils and layering glazes to create a translucent and harmonious play of light and colour. Supply List: Bring your basic selection of brushes, cleaners, mediums, palettes and canvas that you would like to use. At least two canvases (12x16", 14x18", or 16x20" recommended) Reference photos will be provided although it's also recommended to bring your own.
