Jane Martin - Water Colourist

Jane Martin  started drawing and painting in 2008 when she retired and moved to Marmora. She initially did acrylics, and coloured pencil drawings,  taking  lessons from Brenda Hudson in Madoc, and Christine Dominico in Marmora.   In 2013  she decided to paint in watercolours and found it more challenging, but also a lot more fun!  Still really experimenting with different techniques and subjects,  she's  just having fun, .painting  purely for enjoyment!

Ken Prescott has been exhibiting his paintings for over 30 years in both solo and group exhibitions throughout Canada and the United States. He achieves his effects by applying acrylic polymer paints directly on paper, using almost any means that will give him the texture he is looking for – brush, knife, sprayer, trowel, roller. The results are mounted on cradled wood panel or stretched canvas using acrylic polymer adhesive. Two coats of acrylic matte varnish permanently seal the work.
