Janette O'Neil, SCA

Janette O’Neil is exploring all the local beauty of her surrounding home on the shores of Buckhorn Lake in the Kawarthas. A long time artist, Janette has turned her skills to painting en plein air and enjoying the drama of the outdoors. There is only so much time to capture in the fleeting light be it early morning or nightfall. The light and the seasons are integral elements of the landscapes she captures “alla prima” in the fast plein air style.

Coming from a background of graphic design and illustration, it is a joy to be able to luxuriate in painting at will where and when she chooses. She also paints the figure with a group she started in 2009. The figure presents the same challenges as the landscape with perspective, volume and tonal values to build form
