ARTIST DEMONSTRATION BY SHERI JONES
Saturday, March 9TH | 10am to 2pm
If you want to improve your painting skills, create 100 paintings. Something fine artist, Sheri Jones, once read and took to heart. After 30 years, she has long surpassed that number, but credits “brush mileage” for her growth as an artist and for shaping her signature style. Painting outside on location allows her to see more color and depth than working from photos alone. Plein air painting comes with its own unique set of challenges. The light is in constant motion changing the landscape minute by minute. She was advised to paint faster in order to capture it. “That was the first time I picked up the palette knife. I learned I could get more paint on faster.” She found it helped her block in large, base shapes quickly. She also tried using the palette knife in the studio for more detailed work and was “hooked”.
