Practique des Arts Magazine - Nov. 2014

So grateful to Laurent Benoist for the fantastic article, interview,and step-by-step photo shoot he did for me while on site in Cadeques, Spain for the Nov. Issue No.118 of Practique des Arts magazine. To get to share back-to-back articles with the great Chinese Master Liu Yi is an additional honor. And none of this would have been possible without the efforts of dear Angela Barbi and Janine Gallizia for making such platforms possible. Many thanks to the wonderful photographers and editors as well.

Winter Farmyard in Moonlight - Ohio

Winter Farmyard in Moonlight - Ohio Thomas W Schaller Watercolor 18x24 inches 17 Nov 2014
For a long while now I have been in search of something - simplicity - honesty - truth - love.. My art is my way through all these struggles - sorrows and joys as well. My paintings both light and reflect my path as they must. So this is a step in a direction that's come more and more into focus lately.

Cropping

Consider the power of cropping. As painters, we can sometimes choose the formatting of our images without too much thought - usually either vertical or horizontal. While one of these is often the way to go, a square format is also an option, but one to be used carefully. A square format tends to stop the movement of the eye - on purpose. But in doing so, it can also encourage a sense of contemplation,an intensity of focus, and a range of specific moods in your painting. "Sky and Sea" thomas w schaller watercolor - 14x14 inches
