Liven Up Your Snowscenes
ONE FULL DAY: MONDAY Workshop
Snowscenes don't have to be painted in just blues and greys. In this workshop Marianne will demonstrate how she uses lively, loose brushwork and a variety of colour to convey an attractive snowscene.
Winter skies and landscapes can be challenging. We will overcome this by using some techniques to convey the shadows and highlights on the snowdrifts of this magical season, while retaining some enticing aspects of the leftover fall grasses and some evergreen and deciduous trees.
About the Artist:
Marianne was born in England but spent much of her childhood in Malaysia. The stunning scenery and abundance of exotic animals and plants heightened her love of nature and keen interest in drawing and painting. As a teenager, her artwork was selling in local galleries and department stores. Marianne settled in Canada in 1980 and lives in Schomberg, Ontario.
As a full time artist and a sought after art instructor Marianne is never without her sketchbook or camera, always looking for new subject matter for her stunning closeup paintings of flowers, ethereal landscapes and abstract images. Marianne also enjoys taking on commissions of subject matter that she may not otherwise paint. Some of these have been commissioned for publishing purposes and her work has been licensed for Giclée reproductions, needlepoint designs, greeting cards and fine porcelain.
Marianne’s art education in England has been furthered by studies at The Haliburton School of the Arts and courses and workshops with many respected artists.
