Oil Painting Tutorial – Step by Step – Part 2 with Helen Norton

Helen Norton uses narration on a grand scale in her paintings, presenting the viewer with life as if it is a monumental event, while paying equal attention to identifying the smallest parts of our existence.

Her narrative paintings expose our current choices and cultural contributions. Since the earliest paintings and etchings in rock, people have loved to tell stories. Helen is without a doubt a consummate master of contemporary narrative art in Australia.

Helen Norton holds a Masters Degree in Analytical (Depth or Jungian) Psychology and is self taught as a painter. She has been exhibiting for thirty years, and is represented in collections nationally and internationally, having had over sixty solo exhibitions and many more group showings in Australia and overseas.

In this, the second of a 3 part series created especially for Colour In Your Life, Helen demonstrates creating the drama in the scene – the intermediate stage of a painting :)
