Friday I had the pleasure to teach a workshop on "Introduction to gouache" at the Alta Vista library in Ottawa organized by Masc programs for seniors (www.masconline.ca) in partnership with the Ottawa Library. We had a lot of fun! None of my students had worked with gouache before.
I went to the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto this past weekend to see an exhibit on Alex Colville. I enjoyed his unique style of painting. I was surprised how elaborated his sketches were. His subjects sometimes look like they "float" in the painting because he did not paint any shadows. I liked this effect, a bit magical.
