Helleborus Orientalis

I like hellebores flowers, so graceful…I learned on Wikipedia that most species are toxic and have been used a medication. An overdose of medication containing hellebore has been suggested as a possible cause of the death of Alexander the Great.
So here is a mixed media painting, acrylic and pastels on canvas, 24 × 24 inches.

Click here to see a step by step painting tutorial for this mixed media on canvas, on ARTiful painting demos blog.

About Painting demos

Sandrine Pelissier

I grew up in France but have been living in Canada for the last 12 years, I am currently located in North Vancouver and work from a studio on Pemberton Avenue.

I have two passions:

-   Painting the effects of light with watercolor on paper through portraits and cityscapes

( http://www.watercolorpainting.ca/ and http://www.yupopaperpainting.com/ )

-   Building complex textures and edges with acrylics and mixed media on canvas (http://www.mixed-media-paintings.com)

I go back and forth between those two painting techniques, they feed of and influence each other.



Since 2002 I am an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and obtained the Associate Membership status in 2010. I am also a signature member of the Northwest Watercolor Society and San Diego Watercolor Society since 2010.

My paintings have been exhibited in numerous juried exhibitions in Canada and in the United States. I had a feature article in the August 2009 issue of Watercolor Artist magazine, have been published in a few books including the next book of the Splash series,( North Light Books’ hardbound showcase of the best in contemporary watercolors) Splash 11 New directions: the Best of Watercolor, Splash 12 Celebrating Artistic vision , and the book, Best of Watermedia Worldwide (Kennedy publishing). I will also be part of Splash 13 Alternative Approaches, still in edit.
