“Manly MacDonald is sometimes referred to as the forgotten painter in the Group of Seven era. Unlike other artists, MacDonald was first and foremost a family man. He was known to be honest, humorous and dedicated to both his craft and kin. In spite of being overshadowed by his contemporaries, Manly MacDonald was every bit as versatile. He was a first-rate portrait artist and etcher, experimenting with different mediums throughout his long life. Today, his paintings, portraits, etchings, dry points and pastels can be found in national and provincial galleries across Canada and in many private collections. ” — Charles Beale, author of ‘Manly Edward MacDonald, Interpreter of Old Ontario’
MacDonald, born in Point Anne, near Belleville, made The County and the Bay of Quinte Region a frequent subject of his canvas. Join Luanne Hartman for a “Paint 'n Pour Party,” as she guides you step-by-step to create your own acrylic MacDonald masterpiece, mirroring his soft, semi-impressionist style.
