Friday Night with Artist Dominique Prevost – May 5 2017

{written by Ingrid Mueller}

This Friday was filled with images of watercolour paintings by Dominique Prevost. Like most of us, her love of creating started at an early age, and she lead us through her transition of styles and experimentation that has given rise to a successful career as a watercolourist.

Dominique’s discovery of hand-made papers from Japan, France and England, has propelled her use of stains and collage.  She uses the edges of the papers to create intriguing effects and marks, taking advantage of the quality and uniqueness of the papers.

Friday Night with Artist Nola McConnan – April 28, 2017

{Submitted by Ingrid Mueller}

Dynamic, enthusiastic, not to mention talented, Nola McConnan shared her lifelong love of painting and drawing with the DVAC Friday Night Club, and her passion for creating art was infectious.

Although Nola works with a variety of mediums, her demonstration was with watercolours. She tends to like using watercolour and coloured pencils for detail.

Although she has produced some remarkable landscapes and florals, Nola’s favourite subject is animal portraiture, especially horses.

Friday Night with Artist Bill Burns

Bill Burns was the DVAC guest artist on Friday March 24.

Bill brought a number of his very impressive landscape paintings and talked about his technique. Bill uses a very limited palette and uses value to convey depth and a 3D image. Bill tries to paint the patterns he recognizes in a landscape scene and uses these patterns to convey a impressionist landscape that shows interest depth and a transcribing of how the light affects the scene.
