Demo of landscape painting by John Tullis

It is with great pleasure that we will have the opportunity to watch John Tullis demo one of his beautiful landscapes. We’ll learn to observe an object, study its values, shape, environment and then form a composition, finish the sketch and add color to understand how light affects warm and cool sides of the object.

 About the Artist
 “My visual art is focused on two main areas, drawing and painting. The first is figurative art, drawing and painting from live models in charcoal and oil. I belong to two different groups that meet

a couple of times a month. The other area is plein air landscape/ cityscape/seascape painting in oils. I belong to the Contra Costa Plein Air group and the Jade Fon Saturday Painters group. We paint in various locations around the Bay Area. I also take my painting equipment when I travel and I try to do at least a couple of oil paintings each time.”
