Workshops - Thomas Schaller - The Architecture of Light
Following a 20-year career in New York City as an architect and architectural artist, Thomas Schaller is now a full-time watercolor artist living in California. He has won many awards for his architectural artwork and has authored two books: “Architecture in Watercolor and “The Art of Architectural Drawing.” His artwork is collected and exhibited around the world. Thomas is a member of The American Watercolor Society, The National Watercolor Society, The Northwest Watercolor Society, The San Diego Watercolor Society, The California Watercolor Association, the American Society of Architectural Perspectivists, The New York Society of Renderers, and the North American Watercolor Artists. He was recently elected Artist Member of the California Art Club.
Thomas' artwork has been featured in many magazines and publications and has been included in a number of prestigious exhibitions. He is represented by the RS Hanna Gallery, Total Arts Gallery, the Sharp Gallery, the Universal Art Gallery, and the Carter-Sexton Gallery.
“Light” is the constant narrative in Thomas' work; hence, light as the key to working effectively with values in a composition, is the focus of his workshop. Thomas will demonstrate the fundamentals of identifying strong compositional subjects and how to bring strength and clarity to your compositions with a simple value organization. Students will be guided through Thomas' approach: Identifying subject matter by concentrating less on specific objects (places or things) and more on the strength of an abstract value composition of darks and lights, executing quick impressionistic initial abstract value sketches, and completing a strong and satisfying watercolor.
