2010 Summer Workshops

March 24, 2010

Apples on Cloth, Oil on Canvas 16" x 20"

Although spring officially arrived last weekend, I am already working on arrangements and details for my summer workshops.  I am scheduled to conduct watercolor workshops at Rock Valley College in Rockford Illinois and The Peninsula School of Art in Fish Creek Wisconsin.

The first workshop is sponsored by Rock Valley College. The workshop will run June 14 -16. Registration will open April 19.

Painting the Summer Landscape in Watercolor

New methods & techniques for painting some of the landscape elements common to Rockford; grasses, rocks, trees, water. Each day will focus on a single element. During the morning, Tom will conduct exercises & demonstrate techniques used to depict the element. By the afternoon, you can paint a scene which emphasizes that element.  Work from your own reference photographs or those provided.  Paint along as Tom paints the scene.  Weather permitting, time spent outside for plein air painting.  Complete (or near complete) small paintings daily.  Pre-Requisite:  Basic Watercolor Knowledge

Trees, Rocks, Water

Review new methods and techniques for painting the basic landscape elements common to Door County: water, rocks and trees.
