Helping Yourself Realize and Achieve a Paintings True Potential
This two day workshop will feature a watercolor demo on Day One, and oil
painting demo on Day Two. For Judson Brown, oils and watercolors do mix.
Not on the same surface perhaps, but in the workflow of daily painting
activities. These are the mediums he works with most often. The underlying
forces for creating pleasing and successful results really don’t change with
the materials being used. That will be the message for these two days of
enjoyable painting and exercises for artistic growth. His teaching
objectives rely heavily on seeing aspects & potentials of the artistic
endeavor as much as developing skills of paint application, both of which
will be covered. We hope you’ll join in sharing the enjoyment of painting
Judson Brown's Bio:
A lifelong resident of New York State, I grew up in the village of Williamsville, in
western NY. My mother provided an early artistic influence with her watercolors.
Working for an advertising agency, my father introduced me to illustrators and
creative directors. Watching the “magic” created by these artists fostered a
sincere interest in developing my artistic skills and interests.
A Bachelors of Science and Masters Degree in Art Education were earned from
SUNY college at Buffalo. Living in West Valley, NY with my wife Deborah, I
taught High School Art at West Valley Central for 35 years retiring in 2009.
Having served as a President for the Niagara Frontier Watercolor Society
(1986-1992) I had the pleasure of working with some of the finest watercolor
artists, many nationally recognized. Teaching workshops, as well as studying with
portrait & landscape artists keeps me actively informed. The past twelve years
have been more devoted to painting in oils. Those activities along with hikes and
kayaking fill most days here in the Adirondacks. Whenever you have an
opportunity to paint alongside talented artists, it’s a shared and enjoyable
I remain thankful and appreciative, for the early years and numerous painting
trips with Don Getz- AWS, a close friend and established Adirondack artist.
Those years helped to establish my own Adirondack connections, friendships
and reverence for what nature provides us.
