Keith Moreau “Freedom” Colour inks stipple drawing 16″ X 18″
“Where normally I do stipple drawing in black and white, I decided to create the tiny dots in coloured inks using my technical pens. The coloured inks were available in limited colours so I blended different coloured dots next to each other to create the required colours. The work is called “Freedom” because the small horse in the foreground has broken free of the golden shaft it had been attached to. The image is based on the horses on the ride at Disney in Florida. I was informed that they used to be at Sunnyside Park in Toronto before Disney bought the ride.”

“This past summer we went exploring around town and ended up at Kenogamisis Lake in Geraldton Ontario. I had a lot of fun painting this but the water really tested my patience, which is what attracted me to do this painting in the first place. It started off only as a landscape but was suggested by a good friend (Shirley) that I should add the raven and from that point there was no turning back.”

After some introductory classes from a local Barrie artist she began growing her skills in graphite, watercolour, pastel, coloured pencil and acrylic. Susan enjoys painting a variety of subjects in a realistic style and especially enjoys the challenge of portraiture.

Susan was a member of the Executive board of OFAA for 3 years and is still a member of Orillia Fine Arts Association.
