Paint this beautiful, evocative painting, based on the style of pre-eminent Canadian artist, Emily Carr. Emily Carr is one of Canada's most famous 20th century artists, along with Tom Thompson and Lauren Harris, two of the Group of Seven. She was one of the only, and most famous, female artists in North America and Europe. Her work was deeply influenced by the art of the NorthWest Coast First Nations. This piece, entitled "Mountain Forest" and local artist, Mary Lynn Smith will lead students through painting in this style.
Mary Lynn has been painting for several years and really enjoys lots of colour and contrast. Time spent outdoors “plein air” painting is one of her most valued experiences and she finds it very rewarding. Rocks, trees and skies are her favourite subjects. She has worked in various media and experimented with different styles. She hopes she can create paintings that will capture you just as she was captured by the beauty of the world she is seeing.
She hails from Strathroy Ontario and is a retired registered nurse. She has shown paintings in juried art shows throughout Ontario and enjoys commission challenges.
