Yellowknife watercolour and acrylic artist Shawna Lampi-Legaree’s latest venture can best be summarized as capturing moments of beauty from the world around her.
Her exploration of ephemeral flowers in watercolour has been a glorious journey of seeking out and capturing the delicate and luminous quality of the blossom. Simply put, she has been “painting summer sunshine all winter long”. Her technique includes multi-layer washes which build to a crescendo on the paintings that capture the drama of sunlight and the depth of shadows.
More recently, Shawna’s acrylic painting has expanded to include the wealth of the feathered friends that all northerners love. She has enjoyed the wonderful winter antics of trickster ravens, playful ptarmigan and mischievous LBT’s (little brown things). As the spring migration begins Shawna hopes to begin capturing the beauty of our transient flyers. Watch for some interesting images capture flight, reflection in water and the simply beauty of our northern landscape.
Shawna teaches local beginner drawing and painting classes. Her paintings have been juried into a number of the Federation of Canadian Artists Art Shows.
