Chasing Waterfalls

22 Jun 2019 18:57

Last year I created a small series of plein air paintings outside around Calgary and area. "Chasing Waterfalls" (18"x24" acrylic on hardboard) was painted in one afternoon at Elbow Falls. There was hundreds of people walking past on the path, children crying, and young people jumping into the water below on the warm summer day. - Bethany Vanderputten

As part of my study of music celebrity, I painted a portrait of Steven Tyler in 2011. It is a 16”x20” acrylic painting, one of a series of artwork that explores his Cree heritage as part of his persona… Enjoy the graphite drawing here as well. - Bethany Vanderputten
