Instructor Dominik Modlinski
SOLD OUT - Waiting List Only
Dominik Modlinski’s work reflects his travels into remote areas of Canadian wilderness with it's never-ending supply of material that nature affords. He uses dynamic brushstrokes to paint the brilliant hues of Canada's West Coast.
Join us for an inspiring weekend. This is a workshop for artists who wish to expand their knowledge of painting techniques while enhancing their perception and creative visualization.
Dominik will present exercises that introduce the students to colour mixing while achieving unlimited colour harmonies. He will expand on several colour contrast principals, which are bases for successful painting.
He will also inspire your creativity with his travel stories and digital presentations.
Weather permitting Dominik will demonstrate his approach to sketching and painting outside, where the aim is to capture the essence of the subject matter through quick and dynamic brush work.
Dominik was born Warsaw, in 1970. He studied printmaking and attended the School for Artistic Crafts and Design in Warsaw. In 1987 he immigrated to Canada and studied fine arts at Ontario College of Art in Toronto, where he graduated with honours in 1993.
His painting journeys are wilderness experiences based upon weeks of traveling rugged and barren lands to capture, in paintings, the majesty of nature. Some of the most extreme painting expeditions took him across continents and hemispheres such as Antarctica, High Arctic, Greenland, Patagonia, Nambia and South Africa and most recently in to the wilds of Peru and Bolivia.
When he is not traveling, you can find Dominik painting at his home studio in Nanaimo BC. When he is not painting he follows his second passion, martial arts and currently holds a rank of 5th degree black belt.
