The Artists of Algonquin

Wendy Wood

Someone once said ‘Paint what you see’. This is what Wendy Wood does. She is fortunate, she says, to live just south of Algonquin Park in Central Ontario, a setting that affords her a never-ending vista of inspiration.

Wendy paints vibrant landscapes on canvas with acrylic paint. “I prefer liquid acrylics” she says. “I find I am able to get the detail I want or I can use them like watercolour and obtain movement and spontaneity.” Wendy is drawn to the contrast, the light and the structure of the landscape. She carries her camera everywhere, always looking for that perfect spot. When weather permits, she enjoys painting outdoors, where she strives to capture the moment and the feel of the scene.

Wendy’s attention to detail is evident in her work, a legacy of her earlier years as a draftsperson. Wendy has no formal training as an artist but has taken many courses over the years. She has been working as an artist for more than 20 years and her work can be found at various galleries and private collections throughout Ontario.
