Playing around with watercolour in red, getting a feel for heavier textures and varying brushstrokes. Really happy with the creative exercise and the end result.
This week I spent an evening at the studio, working with watercolours in a vibrant primary blue. After a long stressful day, I’m grateful to be able to sit down put my brush to the canvas and focus on being creative. It’s incredibly grounding, bringing me into the moment and letting the stress of the day fade away.
I’m so excited to share that I am having my FIRST gallery show. It’s something I’ve been working towards, and it’s wonderful to finally see it coming together. Opening on October 4th, it’s a collaborative show, myself and 3 other artists, and includes recent abstract works! The poster background for the show is actually one of the pieces that I’ll have on display! If you happen to be in Winnipeg, come on down and check out my work!
I was down at my studio the other night, working on a monochromatic watercolour in Ochre Yellow. So far it’s looking great. I have 2 more steps to apply before it’s done, so I’m posting some pics from the process of putting it together.
Yesterday I was down at my studio, trying out some new watercolour combos, and I’m happy with the results of my experimenting. It was a great afternoon down at the studio, and a nice way to spend my day off.
While film is my primary medium, painting is my oldest. Starting when I was young, I mentored under my mom, Vivian Paschke, an established rural Manitoban artist. I work with a variety of materials, but I tend to gravitate towards watercolors and acrylic.
