Thomas W. Schaller on the systemic approach to watercolors

In the life of the American artist Thomas W. Schaller it all began with architecture. At first he became known to the world as the author of the professional bestseller "The Art of Architectural Drawing". It was so useful to professionals that it is almost impossible to find it on a free sale. The hobby for watercolor technique also moved Thomas to create certain basic knowledge, and the modern art world got acquainted with a new primer textbook - "Architecture in Watercolors". He completely repeated the fate of his predecessor: it is impossible to find it in a bookshop.



The artist is endowed with an innate talent for communication, so rare for members of this profession. It is this quality that explains the success of the books he wrote, which also forces him to conduct endless seminars and lectures for American students. It is not enough for a true master to master craftsmanship - for the fullness of his own realization he must share it with an infinite number of other thirsty apprentices Michael Cheval art for sale.

Architecture is another destiny, but in the watercolor technique Thomas W. Schaller really surpassed all. His hand made this material as obedient as acrylic, pastel or gouache: all the lines are very clear, and all the color solutions, not a tint, did not change the shade of their own accord. Ordinary contemplative sometimes does not even recognize the material that this American artist uses. And it never happened with watercolor until it was touched by the hand of this American architect and landscape painter.








Raphael paintings

I have only painted two paintings of the experience of the shameless to answer. Really non-professional, big touch please tender criticism.

I did not seriously learn about a year sketch, and then very uncomfortable. The Want to paint color ah color, and then directly for the election of the oil painting.
The following is the slag, a lot of inclusive, light spray.




Copy the teacher's painting, but the whole process of the teacher did not care for me ... so it is self-study it ... probably each with three or four pm, the painting is so cool, tune the pigment is very fun, the only bad mood is even the hair has a pigment The
With my current memory, I think the color is not the most difficult part, the most difficult is how to use the color to express the sense of structure and sense of hierarchy, because the two are relatively static, so want to draw a dynamic beauty is more difficult to estimate
As for the painting of these two paintings experience, I want to say that no matter what the painting is very happy, and finished when the kind of sense of accomplishment is really cool than anything else, and oil painting is this feeling. The After painting finished all feel is not their own painting. The And more important to me is that I decided to learn the basic things, because they are far worse, a good work is numerous practice out of the pile.

And then eggs, I was delayed for a year.
Because then I was a high school girl did not test art, roll to learn.
Say more are tears ... envy art students ...
