Award-winning Chilliwack artist, Patricia Peters, will demonstrate some of her unique painting techniques during a demonstration at The Arthouse on Mill St. on Nov. 26.
Peters tries to evoke feelings and vitality rather than strict renderings. She employs delicious colour and texture to give depth and excitement to her work.
One process she uses is to lay down a juicy, hot, under-painting, and then respond to that energy; allowing colour to seep into the cracks and edges… contrasting sheer transparent colour against opaque passages.
Her response is intuitive, and her style continually evolving.
Peters’ works vary dramatically from watercolors, through acrylic, to encaustic and print making.
She currently shows her work in a variety of galleries including locally owned and operated downtown art gallery – The Arthouse on Mill St.
She will also be showcasing some new pieces during this afternoon demonstration.
The live painting demonstration with Patricia Peters is Saturday, Nov. 26 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Arthouse (2-9360 Mill St.). Admission is free.
