Yukon Artists At Work has a busy day today. The opening of John Boivin's show is today. Beautiful bold colours and incredible detail - if I were to try to define his style it would be impressionistic realism and there is a rhythmic flow to his paintings- the opening reception is at 5pm.
In the last few days I have met some of the artists, tonight I will meet more at John's show. I want to do to work at the gallery regularly I feel it is really important.
There is lots of molding paste mixed with the paint to create texture on this newest painting. I used a sgraffito technique to scratch into the paint in the foreground to create a very textured look as well.
