How to Paint Over a Painting – Part 2 with Christine Read

Christine works in acrylics, oils, pencil and also enjoys the old craft of hand silk screen printing and sells tea towels printed with Australiana designs.  

Prior to full retirement in 2016, Dr Christine Read, was for more than twenty years a family doctor in Manly, NSW and later a sexual health physician and Medical Director of Family Planning, NSW. She comments on the transition; 

Art was at the centre of my life as a child and adolescence, and I always had a dream that I could become a full time artist. The interesting thing is that my life of medicine has really led me on to teaching art and leading art retreats – as I use the communication skills I learned at the bedside and the education skills I learned as a medical educator. I have a sense of leading people on a holistic creative journey that improves their approach to their lives and has therefore extended my role in helping with emotional, physical and mental health in the art studio.

In Part 1 of this demonstration, Christine showed how she “renovates” an old landscape painting into her signature “fantasy still life” painting.  In this, Part 2, and the conclusion of this painting, she demonstrates background development as well as foreground foliage detail and patterning elements in the silver jug.
