November Members Meeting and Demonstration by Paul Allen Taylor
November 16, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Come learn about what's happening in the watercolor community in Western New York, enjoy the company of fellow watercolor and watermedia enthusiasts, and watch a demonstration by the colorful impressionist painter from Rochester, NY, Paul Allen Taylor.
Born in Rochester, NY, Paul Allen Taylor is a self-taught watercolorist recognized for his fresh use of color and impressionistic style. As a respected teacher and workshop instructor, Taylor has developed a following where students find him engaging, highly skilled, and entertaining.
I have been working in watercolor for nearly thirty years. In the beginning I painted as a hobby after finishing college classes. With time my skills improved and my range of subjects grew. I soon realized that painting was not just something to do, but something I needed to do.
Today I am an artist fulfilling a personal drive, teaching others what I have learned and benefitting from the sales of my art.
My recent work has involved pre-drawing in ink with a match stick. Where some artists will draw over a watercolor in pen and ink, the pre-ink method with a match stick creates a drawing with varied line as the basis for the painting. This drawing not only adds necessary detail and shape definition to the work but also makes the painting process easier. This will be the subject of my demonstration for NFWS.
Taylor teaches watercolor for the Rush Henrietta Schools Adult Education program and the Artstore at Southtown Plaza in Rochester. His work can be seen at the Artstop in Penfield, NY, the Lower Mill Gallery in Honeoye Falls, NY, Bay House Artisans, Alexandria Bay, NY, and Mares Wares Pottery, Morristown, NY.
Besides our regularly scheduled meetings, workshops, and exhibitions we sometimes collaborate on certain regional events that would be of interest to our members.
