Painting Water using Water-Based Oil Paint


On Thursday, October 27th, LJAA Member and Artist Virginia Howlett, conducted a demonstration of painting a water scene using water-based oil paints. It was a very informative demonstration that was well-attended.


Virginia showed the crowd how she selects a photo reference of water and how she approaches the artistic process to create an impressionistic style painting. She also discussed why she uses water-based oil paints and the differences between water-based oil and acrylic paint or traditional oils. It was an interesting and informative session!


Please plan to join us for our next Demonstration on November 17th from 4-6pm. This demo will feature member/artist Dana Levine. Dana will be lead an interactive discussion on the importance of composition in the creation of any artistic image. Our demonstrations are free, so invite a friend along!
