Acrylic Abstracts – Chris Chown

FullSizeRenderDEMO – Monday, February 13 – 7:00 pm  to 9:00 pm

Chris will outline the steps she follows to create a basic structure upon which to base a two-dimensional image in colour. This will include tonal value studies, which are, for her, the first step in dividing the existing space. Then, with several kinds of tools to move paint around, she will attempt to show ways to explore the surface, and “listen” to the results, to create a satisfying design.
One day workshop to follow on Sunday, March 12, 2017.

Christine Chown
Chris attended Western Technical School in Toronto, the Commercial Art Program. Further painting experience was garnered by taking workshops with master painters, in Canada, USA, and Europe, over a period of many years. In the past, representational images from life were her direction; but for the last three years, she has enjoyed the challenge of creating images in a non-objective manner, using shapes, tones, mark making, colour and textures, with no defined subject matter, a challenging, ever-elusive quest.
