I feel so lucky to have been able to go to Santa Fe to the Art Expo event last week. I had workshops with 3 fun teachers. First WS was with Tom Lynch. First we
were treated to a demo then using our own photos we drew our photo on a small
piece of watercolor paper. Tom showed us how he would paint it on each one's sketch.
Then we tried to paint it like Tom did. Then he checked each one & critiqued them correcting
each one. For Tom's class you have to use Gemini paper (made in England & distributed
by Stratmore) it is easy to correct mistakes , lift color & then have the ability to repaint
over the scrubbed area. Wonderful paper which I will try to use some more. I have always
worked on 140 cold press Arches paper which has been my favorite paper for a long time.
Jury still out on which one will become my favorite paper. More Expo fun in next post. Above Tom
demo's, first painting is Tom's small demo on my sketch, second painting is mine. I decided to put clouds over my mountains after I got home. The chart is found in Tom's book along with many more. Yes, I had to have a signed Tom Lynch book.
