Friday Night with Gail Williams – January 26
(Submitted by Ingrid Mueller)
Gail Williams brought her jovial good nature and love for creating and experimentation to our January 26th Friday Night Club and shared a new technique she had learned recently at a workshop with Alice Van der Vennen http://alicevandervennen.ca/workshops/
Hailing from northern Ontario, specifically Thunder Bay, Gail was encouraged to create from an early age. Inspired by the “sleeping giant”, Lake Superior, Gail’s work will often include whispers of the giant water, and has found that the copper greatly enhances her contemporary landscape paintings.
Working with copper foil is a collage type procedure that is simple but creates drama in just about any painting.
Supplies she used are:
15mm copper foil sheet
Canvas or wood substrate
Spray fixative to preserve the foil
