Watercolor Painting Demonstration with Duane Anderson

May 19 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Transparent watercolorist Duane Anderson demonstrates his painting process.

From Duane Anderson
From earliest childhood, I always loved drawing. I have been painting with first watercolors and then acrylics for 35 years. My love of painting made me leave architecture, my chosen profession, to concentrate on architectural illustration. That proved to be a good decision as I was able to combine my passion for painting with my love of architecture.

I am presently a tenured professor of architecture at Bakersfield College. I teach perspective drawing and architectural graphics. In addition, I have taught multiple workshops and classes in drawing and watercolor for both children and adults. I work completely in watercolor, predominately transparent, although what I am trying to say with the image is much more important. So, I do use opaque paint occasionally.

My approach to my work is to paint as realistically as I can in an abstract impressionistic way. I find it a most enjoyable experience to work close and then view from a distance to see how perspective plays such a vital role in how we view our world. I admit I love “details” to a fault. But, I am very happy, indeed, that they have helped me find my voice in painting. I am presently represented by The Agora Gallery in NYC.
