Watercolours with Linda Kemp April 27-30, 2019
Linda Kemp is a full-time artist and busy instructor throughout Canada, the USA, and the UK. Linda is internationally recognized for her unique contemporary watercolours and innovative use of negative painting. She is the author of two books, "Watercolour Painting Outside the Lines - A Positive Approach to Negative Painting" and "Simplifying Design and Color for Artists - Positive Results Using Negative Painting Tehcniques", (North Light pub.) and six instructional DVDs.
Linda says, “There is nothing like an intriguing puzzle to get the brain working and few things more satisfying than finding a solution to a perplexing problem. So while some people take pleasure in working on the newspaper's daily crossword puzzle, I can't resist sorting through and arranging shapes and colours, in particular the interwoven forms and layers of patterns I find while investigating tangled woodlands, meandering streams, open fields, roadside ditches and marshes. Appreciating my discoveries is easy; figuring out how to interpret my finds and then portraying that essence two dimensionally with paint on paper is the real challenge! It is this desire to decipher, understand, and organize what I see that motivates me to paint. In my attempt to interpret nature's patterns and understand how the pieces fit together, my strategy relies on two things, simplifying the complicated and taking an alternative negative, or subtractive, approach."
