Tom Jones demo recap – He starts on 300# and lays in the sky. No sketch today, but he very often starts with a sketch. He only uses bright white papers. First put in a Aureolin yellow starburst. Then add Permanent red deep. Then spray water so the colors flow better. Then add Ultramarine blue.
Have a variety of hard and soft edges (1/3) variety of color and variety of height of trees… this is good for the painting.
He added reds to the side of the trees facing the sun…and a bit of Pyrrole Orange, a transparent color. He encourages us to paint our memories. Have something to say.
Tom was very generous in giving away many supplies to our members! Here are the winners of the drawings-
Tom encourages us to photograph any of the paintings he brought and to copy them, above are just a few that were on display.
Thank you Tom for a great demonstration and all of the great art tips!
Finally here is one of Tom’s quotes:
“The arts separate a civilized from an uncivilized society”
