Part of a powerpoint presentation I showed to the students at Dixie State College.
Last night I gave a short presentation to the watercolor class at Dixie State College. I try to say “yes” as often as possible to invitations to speak because I want to share what I love about art with as many people as possible. But it’s great to spend time with young artists, because they are so full of enthusism and eagerness. This group was very involved in the discussion and had excellent questions. My subject was how to use negative painting (or back painting) to convey light and shadow in the landscape. Once again, however, they seemed to be most amazed at my sketchbooks.
