About Kerry Walford

Hi,
My name is Kerry Walford

I am an Artist, Gallery Owner, Art Teacher & proud Mamma.  While I juggle a lot of hats, I am extremely grateful to be doing what I LOVE and I'm so excited to share it with you!  Art has always been a passion of mine, but the path was not always clear. My goal here is to inspire and encourage you along your journey, whether you dabble in art occasionally, or dream of being a full-fledged paint-slinger.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: 
I have decided I won’t be adding any NEW tutorials on Patreon, but I will leave the existing videos up for a while, as I know many have barely scratched the surface so you will still have access to them. In the mean time I’m working on creating a better format to share my tutorials directly from me to you that is more sustainable for me.  If you're interested in my new tutorial platform please send me an email ([email protected]) and I will make sure to keep you posted as it develops!  

What is Patreon?

What do I offer?
1.) Acrylic Paint Tutorials
Follow me step-by-step from start to finish as we paint together in real-time. I will share the whole process of mixing colours, brush technique, and helpful tips & tricks along the way.

2.) Acrylic & Oil Paint Tutorials

Same as above but you can explore both acrylic & oil painting!  Not sure which medium is best for you - try them both.  Just interested in oils - that's fine too - just watch the tutorials of your interest. 

3.) Professional Artist Practices
Enjoy all the acrylic & oil tutorials from the previous tiers, plus additional tutorials focusing on the business & Promotional side of being a professional artist.  

My Story:

For as long as I can remember I have had a keen eye for observing and sketching out my surroundings. The act of creating brings me much joy and I liken a painting session to a form of mediation.

I work mainly in oils but teach a lot in acrylics and I am inspired by light, shadows, interesting compositions, and the exploration of colour. I paint many things, but it is the rural Ontario landscape that I gravitate to most. Some of my favourite subject matter includes country roads, rolling farm fields, large cloudy skies and anything at the golden hour. I work on small and large canvass and I like to work quickly, with gestural brushstrokes.  I’m always striving to say more with less. 

I start each piece with an orange under-painting (a technique known as Imprimatura) and build up layers of colour working thin to thick. My works are impressionistic and aim to transport the viewer to a special place and time.

I love adventuring though my surroundings wherever they may be, with a camera in hand or even better painting en plein air capturing the moment as I see and feel it.  Seeking out these wondrous sights and experiences and translating that energy to canvas brings me an abundance of joy and satisfaction.

Thank you for checking out my Patreon Tutorials!
