The overall objective of the workshop is to show the vast range and flexibility of watercolor and to put emotion and conviction into painting by exploring, experimenting and developing creativity of each individual. Tom likes to put fun into the process of painting, along with enthusiasm and new techniques in an atmosphere that makes the intermediate and advanced painter feel welcome!
A goal for each day is set, and each student will see an example and understanding of that day's lesson. There will be daily demonstration paintings, with detailed explanations of all the "hows" and "whys" followed by individual attention to see that each student understands and has an example of the day's objective. Included will be tips on photography, "on-location" painting and matting. Also, Lynch's ever-popular program on salvage techniques for discarded paintings during the critique session.
Lynch brings to his class the same enthusiasm and energy as seen on his (6) national PBS series "Fun with Watercolor" that has been on PBS for the last 20 years. His vast list of accomplishments, credits and awards are listed in "Who's Who in American Art". He is a signature member of the Society of American Impressionists and numerous watercolor societies. His work is featured in all the leading art publications including the American Artistmagazine, the International Artist magazine, the Wall Street Journal, Artist Magazine, Southwest Art and Arts and Antiques. He has written six books on watercolor techniques. Among his many prestigious exhibits were a one-man show at the American Embassy in Paris and as the featured artist for four U.S. Open Golf tournaments and numerous PGA events.
