April Art Demo​​nstration

The FAA welcomes Stephen Berry as our Guest Artist at our April 7th General Meeting.

 

Stephen is a watercolorist located in Vallejo.  Born in Hayward and raised in Sonora, he has a deep personal love for the tawny slopes, granite mountains, and redwood groves endemic to the area. The sentiment is obvious in his paintings depicting the unique beauty and signature features of California.  

 

Stephen will be leading an advanced/beginning-advanced workshop on April 16-18, 2021 via Zoom, hosted by the California Watercolor Society.   The workshop will focus on the challenging subject of Composition, through the creation of strong focal points, and creating interest through contrast. His demo at our April 7th General Meeting will be an excellent opportunity to see a live demonstration of his techniques and methods. 

Painting is more than just an art form for Stephen. He likes the challenge of control, and the freedom that comes from letting go and teaming up with the elemental process.

 

“Paying attention and being whole-heartedly engaged in what you are doing is a simple, undervalued pleasure, and painting is a tool which encourages me to do so.”  

For more information on Stephen, you can visit his website HERE.
