“I so often hear painters say that they want to loosen up and paint more freely as well as put more color into their paintings”. – Tom Balderas
Join Tom Balderas as he guides you through his approach to simplifying subject matter with a loose hand while gaining an understanding of color relationships. Learn a method that will fine tune your sense of color observation and concentrate on the gestural essence of an object rather than overt rendering. Come ready to swing a big brush after watching Tom demonstrate his ideas on canvas. This course is open to painters of all abilities. Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Gouache – the choice is yours!
Growing up in Torrance, California, Tom Balderas
lived only a few miles from the ocean, which has made nature, along with his family, the main inspiration of his paintings. Balderas attended Loyola Marymount University, where he studied film production and art. After graduating, he worked several years for NBC Productions and helped make many made-for-television movies. He then began studying under the tutelage of his photographer father, as well as Joseph Mendez, master painter and teacher. Balderas considers the time spent studying with Mendez to be the cornerstone of his growth as a painter. tombalderas.com
