Water Works: Painting From Inspiration to the Finish Line

Every artist goes down a unique road with each work he/she creates. Artist Del-Bourree Bach will take you down his “road” by showing the audience what inspires him, and how he proceeds. He will also address the importance of design in his paintings and the different techniques he uses to achieve the finished product including why he likes working in acrylic. The process of creating a painting from start to finish is a lengthy one. Therefore, the artist will provide images of several paintings in their various stages, demonstrating the broad beginning strokes to the detailed work and the many layers of glazing throughout the creative process.
