The Many Shapes of Water

Tony O’Regan’s demo will include many of the concepts needed in creating reflections in water, the light and shadow and dynamics of ocean waves and the necessary parts of streams and waterfalls. The demos will be mostly in acrylic on canvas or paper.

Tony O’Regan was born in Cork, Ireland in a house called Santa Lucia, built by his uncle, Mark, who sang with the great Joe Loss orchestra in the big band era. He grew up and was educated in Florida and in Canada. He graduated in Art and Architecture. He painted many paintings, designed many buildings, and taught art and design in universities for over 20 years. He drinks coffee at the Pelican and sketches the gulls as they ‘gyre and gimble’ in the waves by the great White Rock.

Tony continues to create a collection of hundreds of his demonstrations and teaching videos at (also known as ) as well as other useful content for artists, teachers, students and design school applicants.
