Beginning Watercolor

For as long as Tom has been painting, he’s been teaching. The two practices are now inextricably interwoven. Painting influences teaching, of course, but just as often Tom finds what he’s teaching effects how he paints. The need to articulate the subtleties of seeing form rather than content, for example, has helped him gain detachment from his immediate agenda while I am painting.
Over the years, Tom has acquired a reputation as someone to work with when you want to loosen up your brushwork or simplify your approach. This is a lot to live up to. Trying to stay one step ahead of his students on the “free and easy” scale may have accelerated his own evolution. Who can say which came first?
