I had the wonderful opportunity of taking a Federation of Canadian Artist, Calgary Chapter "Experimental Techniques in Watermedia" with Richard McDiarmid. I found the techniques we worked with as well as working in acrylics very interesting in my own work and Richard's demo's. After each demo we worked on our pieces with words of advice as Richard walked around the room. This painting is very textural and used a variety of methods taught in the workshop. I love how both my pieces turned out and how different they were! The first piece was "Shared Wisdom".
