The streetcar is good way to see Toronto and really represent the city. It’s a sunny day, I wanted to capture light and reflection on the streetcar. I’m using palette knife to paint in alla prima technique, or au premier coup.
I have my 12 paintings on display for the month of December in Cj’s cafe in Bronte, Oakville.
You can enjoy art-shows, live music of every genre, authors’ readings, book launches and signings, art-lessons, drumming classes, artisan jewelry parties, tai chi demonstrations. You can have breakfast or lunch or just drop for the favorite coffee and enjoy the art. Well, all paintings are for sale too, it could be the best present for the holiday seasons as well!
I started to paint portrait of my favorite artists, here is the first one, of course it’s Lucien Freud.
Elizabeth Elkin is a renowned professional artist with an international reputation. Over the span of thirty years, she utilizes her advanced painting skills to create superior quality oil paintings. The true innovation of her work lies in the power of her vibrant colors, her museum quality works of expressionist art and her unique style of cubism in which the painting only reveals its true complexity after careful viewing over time.
