Join this plein air painting workshop with Tatjana Mirkov-Popovicki. Learn how to quickly establish vibrantly coloured, dynamic compositions in the field, how to apply an expressive mark-making process with acrylic paint, and take a fun, step-by-step approach to developing values and colours.
We will start by selecting, simplifying, and sketching a well-designed scene, followed by an expressive acrylic painting technique using exciting, intense colours. Each part of the process will be demonstrated and explained by the instructor. Over the two days, we will repeat this process several times, resulting in a mini collection of loose, textured, and uniquely vibrant landscape paintings.
- Quickly establish dynamic and richly coloured compositions
- Apply an exciting, expressive mark-making process with acrylic paint using conventional and unconventional tools
- Take a reliable step-by-step approach to complete the painting on location
About the instructor - Tatjana Mirkov-Popovicki, SFCA
Tatjana Mirkov-Popovicki is an award-winning Canadian landscape painter based in Port Moody, British Columbia, where she emigrated from Serbia in 1994. Although art was her first and true love, the challenging reality of her native country made her choose education in science. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and pursued a Hi-Tech career while studying and making art part-time. Tatjana is presently a full-time painter with a passion for the west coast and mountains.
Tatjana is a Past President, Senior Signature Artist (SFCA) and Honorable Lifetime Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. Her paintings have been exhibited, collected and represented by art galleries since 2005.
