How to get the most from a single photo reference • Doug Swinton Demonstration

Winter Scene in Oil • Doug Swinton

Fast Moving Demo

  • Friday December 8, 2017  
    Time: 6-8pm
$25

Doug will paint three paintings using the same reference photograph in this two hour demonstration.

See how to paint the same scene in different seasons (spring, fall and winter) by using just the knowledge of your colours and a bit of imagination.

Prepare to be jolly and to take lots of notes. 

How to describe my art? That's like trying to hit a moving target. Just when I think its going one direction the ever-elusive leopard slips away and changes its spots. Slathering thick viscid paint on a freshly unwrapped canvas is sensual and visceral. For me it's always been more about the doing, than the end product. It's like being at a live concert. The energy that comes from the doing is a highly powerful thing. I tend to get bored easily so I will flit from subject to subject. As J. R. Tolkien said, "not all that wander are lost". No matter what the subject, it's always the same, the most amount of information with the least amount of brushstrokes.
snow mountains by doug swintonI never really intended to make art a career it just keeps happening. Maybe its living in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and being surrounded by the spectacular landscape. Maybe it's that my mom was always in the kitchen painting wicker baskets of bright fruit with Chianti wine bottles, or may it was all the doodles and drawings that adorned each and every page of my math book. but some how, art has now become my career.


The Friday Night Demo Series showcases professional artists and helps you learn by watching them create. With a question and answer session after each demo, it's a fantastic way to gain new insights into how artists work. Whether you paint or not, wine with cheese and art are the perfect way to enjoy a Friday evening.
