Nov 16, 2021 - Nov 21, 2021


Online demo with Mark McDermott

During an alla prima demonstration Mark McDermott will explain his approach to initial colour selection. As he paints he will discuss colour mixing vs colour adjusting and how to apply it.

Mark McDermott‘s enthusiasm for art goes back to his early childhood in England where he displayed a keen interest in drawing. Moving to Canada at an early age he was eager to be Canadian. In his late 20s he re discovered his creativity and received a diploma in Graphic Design and Illustration from Capilano University. Around 2003 Mark started to self teach himself in oil painting and developed his skill over the next several years. After a hiatus from painting Mark continued to study colour and technique and in 2017 picked up painting again with renewed vigour and much improved technique and style. Mark has since been juried into shows in New York, Santa Fe and several online shows. Mark also was a finalist in the prestigious ARC Salon in 2020.
