Spend a day with John David Anderson, who describes himself as a Canadian contemporary impressionist. To use his words, contemporary because he is alive and impressionist because that is a good description of his paintings. John David likes to paint alla prima (all in one session), perfect for a workshop, to keep the painting fresh, loose, colourful and gestural. Experience the character of the light and the compositions that flow from the pathway of light through a space.
John David paints tonally with rich colour and an impressionist character. He is not driven by the subject but by the light. Learn how to convey movement. Learn how to use fluctuating emphasis of light and shadow along with the use of hard and soft edges to enhance movement. The demonstrations will be conducted using oil paints. However, participants may bring the painting medium of their choice.
John David paints in both oils and acrylics.
