"The Architecture of Light" Workshops in Watercolor : 2014

"THE ARCHITECTURE OF LIGHT" : WORKSHOPS IN WATERCOLOR - 2014 - THOMAS W. SCHALLER http://thomasschaller.com, http://thomasschaller.com/workshops I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying a good summer so far! Next year seems a long way off, but time goes by so quickly, so I've attached a list of my upcoming workshops for next season - 2014. The list is not quite complete. A few others venues remain to be added as soon as schedules and details are confirmed. Notices will be sent, but feel free to check my site for updates. My workshops have become a real joy for me to conduct, and I think for painters - of all levels - to attend! Of course, we study lots of specific techniques for painting in watercolor. But the real emphasis is in helping painters to discover new ways of seeing the world around us, and how to find compelling subject matter and striking compositions almost anywhere. And primarily, we study the nature of light. I emphasize the goal of not painting the object or the scene before us as much as painting the light that defines it and gives it life. The practice is an exciting one and a technique that can help turn an ordinary painting into an extraordinary work of art. So it is my sincere hope that you can join me for a workshop near you, or maybe you'd like a more extensive vacation in one of the beautiful venues I have lined up. These are some really exciting places to spend your time. I promise that whichever you chose, my workshops are always filled with great company, great food, plenty of fun, and of course - lots of painting. I look forward to seeing good friends again, and anticpate meeting plenty of new ones. And I am eager to paint with you all sometime and somewhere soon down the road. All my best wishes, Tom
