Tom Jones - June 9 - 13, 2014
Creating Atmosphere in Watercolor Landscapes
Plein Air / Studio

"I am a story teller.  I tell stories with my paintings of places I have been and things I have seen.  I believe that a painting should not only tell a story, but should have a story behind it.  All my paintings do."
  The workshop will include painting demonstrations that will teach you how to create drama and atmosphere for more excitement in your finished works. 
  Students enjoy individual hands-on instruction with an emphasis on developing first wash, values, textures, variety of color, edges and shapes, as well as creating the illusion of light.
  Tom seeks to make his workshops fun and entertaining as well as help students leave with fresh ideas for painting in watercolor.  Tom will critique all students work during and at the end of the workshop and each student will receive a signed print by Tom as a gift.
