Our 10th Annual tour is only a couple of weekends away, May 6 & 7, and for the next couple of weeks we’ll be featuring the different media represented in our selection of artists. Today, we are featuring the watercolour artists on the tour.
Some of these artists use watercolour as their primary medium, while others do watercolours as a complement to their primary medium, so the art featured in this post may or may not be painted in watercolour. In either case, all have their own unique ways of expressing themselves through this very challenging medium which has a rich and varied history.
Starting with Location #15, we have
A complement of watercolour and natural colours including coffee and walnut ink on canvas and paper.
Watercolour and acrylic paintings of local, western Canada and Florida landscapes.
At Location #14,
Bright and bold watercolours depicting nature.
Skipping to Location #12, we find
Michael de Belleval
Acrylic abstracts and realistic watercolours of Ontario and beyond. Studio open with a phone call.
Then, at Location #11,
Realistic and detailed drawings rendered with pen and ink, graphite and watercolour. Commissions welcome.
Several stops later, at Location #7, we find
Heather MacIntosh, A.O.C.A.
A painting style that walks the edge between representational and abstract.
then at Location #6, we have
Realistic and vivid watercolours and acrylics of flowers and the English countryside. Commissions welcome.
Mystery, vibrancy, beauty and emotion expressed through ink, watercolour and oil works.
Skipping to Location #4, we have
Realistic wildlife and nature paintings in acrylic and watercolour with beautiful attention to detail.
(Rhonda is also the designer of our tour brochures, available in many places around the area or from any of our artists.)
A distinct watercolour style….. Gallery in her home is open all year by appointment.
(Sue organizes and carries out most of the tasks involved in making the Oxford Studio Tour a success – just about everything except the brochures and the website, though she also gathers the information necessary for them. A large round of applause for her comes from all of the artists! )
and finally at Location #3, it is
Vivid watercolours and digital art reflecting nature’s patterns with depth and unique vision.
