About the Artwork

I’ve been wanting to find a way to incorporate fine graphite drawing into my oil painting, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to experiment. I did the drawing component first, and sealed it with acrylic. Suffering was involved; I wanted to draw the background grasses from life and settled down in the tall grass near the garden. For visibility I couldn’t wear my bug net, and this has been the worst mosquito summer in decades! Everything after that was a piece of cake. The painting is completed with a birch frame that complements the boy’s colouration.

Argenta, British Columbia

Oiseau lives and paints in the mountains of British Columbia, Canada. While she focuses primarily on portraiture and the figure, plein air landscape painting is also an important part of her practice and inspiration.

"In painting as in life, whatever distance you travel just opens up further vistas for exploration. Subtleties, bold statements, complexities of relationships, colour, colour, colour. I wish I could paint forever!"
