Oil Painting Demo

Erica Norelius will give an oil painting demo at the El Cerrito Art Association meeting at 7:00 pm on Feb.13 in the Garden Room of the El Cerrito Community Center.

Erica will paint a color study using a photo from her painting trip to Cuba, step two in her process of studio painting, which follows a value sketch. She will show us how she goes from photo reference to value sketch to color study and then on to the larger paintiing, exploring a limited palette.

An award-winning oil painter, Erica’s work has been featured in a wide range of publications. Her work has appeared on the covers of Cornell’s lliterary magazine, Epoch, and she has often been a finalist in the International Artist Magazine. Among her most prestigious awards was receiving second honors at the Portrait Society of America’s International Competition in 2015.
