Painting: Oils, Acrylics and Watercolour
Artwork Copyright © Fay Campbell
As long as I can remember I have been interested in art. I never had the opportunity in the early years , but after moving to Pinawa I had a couple of friends who painted and they let me watch them and learn a few things. I have never had any formal training but have taken a few one day courses. I started in oil and have now switched to more acrylic and watercolour. I enjoy the challenge of watercolour but find oil and acrylic a little easier.
My early paintings were mostly scenery, and I still do some, but my real passion is flowers. I like fine detail work. A lot of my work is trial and error. I have sold some of my painting across Canada and even have some in other parts of the world . One of my special pieces is a bouquet of lilacs done in oil and is in southern Ontario.
I have won many awards in in Shows in Texas and first and second places in the Eastman juried art show. I wish I had more time for my art but hopefully I will be able to paint for many more years.
