Instructor: Takeyce Walter
Adirondack scenes can be inspiration for some of the most beautiful paintings, but can also be one of the most challenging compositions to master. Students participating in this one-day workshop will explore the techniques often used in capturing an Adirondack landscape.
This workshop is designed for students of all levels and all media.
Takeyce will be working with pastels to provide demos, and students will be provided with one-on-one feedback, reference material, and assignments to practice the techniques learned at home. There will also be a critique at the end of class to review the work completed.
Takeyce Walter is an award winning contemporary American painter (born 1980, Jamaica), media producer, and art instructor living and working in beautiful upstate New York. Driven to create from an early age, Walter has been producing art for as long as she can remember. Currently, her focus has been on the natural landscape of the Northeast. Walter’s paintings present that landscape in all its glory – flowing rivers, majestic skies, and picturesque lakes. There is a great sense of familiarity, tranquility, and reverence in each piece. The paintings feature the rural landscape of upstate New York, the Adirondacks, Cape Cod, and Vermont. Walter is especially inspired by, and drawn to bodies of water; rivers, lakes, marshes, streams and the ocean. She is fortunate to live near the scenic Hudson, Mohawk, Au Sable Rivers, and visits the beaches of Cape Cod during the summer. Inspired by the Daily Painters of the mid-2000s, Walter made a commitment to finishing at least one painting a week in 2005, and started blogging to help track her progress. Many years later, she has maintained that commitment and is currently producing art on a prolific basis. In addition to exhibiting her paintings online, she also exhibits in regional galleries in the Northeast. Her art has found homes in many private collections across the country, and internationally, as well these notable collections: The Saratoga Hospital Foundation, and the Brookside Museum.
