On September 15 the QCFAPC was fortunate to have three talented painters come to demonstrate their watercolor skills simultaneously. A tremendous amount of time and thought went into preparations to make this happen by Dusty and Jim Petty. You can find these artist’s at the Tubac School of Fine Art. www.tubacschooloffineartllc.com
Roberta Rogers gave a talk on Plein Air concepts. Trained with the California School of Light Painters, she has been painting and teaching for many years. Trust your instincts to bring a fresh look to your watercolors.
John Schooley has a history in the advertising business that brings sophistication to his compositions. He has the ability to carefully draw his work in .3 ink pen on tracing paper and then on the watercolor paper. This prep work eliminates composition decisions as you paint. The modeling lends a super realism to the subject.
Jim Petty, a multi talented artist, demonstrated his techniques with watercolor pencils, paint and graphite using carefully layered washes to bring personality to his subjects.
