DOUG WALTON WORKSHOP
The Upstairs Gallery
Recently I attended a workshop at the Upstairs Gallery in Arlington, Texas
where I teach watercolor classes. I was a student once again under
a master painter and teacher, Doug Walton.
Douglas M.Walton is an art professor at Louisiana University. He takes
groups of artists to paint and draw in Bali and San Migel de Alente.
He is an accomplished painter and teacher in several mediums.
His currant artistic endeavor includes fused glass. He designs
beautiful necklaces, bracelets, rings and ear rings in exquisite colors of glass.
His workshop at theUpstairs Gallery was very creative.
We painted abstract underpaintings on saturated full sheets
of watercolor paper with acrylic paint.
After the paper dried we chose a subject and started
developing the background and bringing the subject out with details.
It was great fun to be a memeber of the class. The change gave me
room to grow and freedom to express myself creatively.
Below are two of the paintings I finished in the class. They are not painted
in my normal style of painting. Let me know what you think.
