Our next meeting, the first of the 2016-2017 Season, will be held on Tuesday, September 20, 2016.

The September Demonstrator will be Walt Davis, demonstrating watercolor. Meeting starts at 6:30.

Walt Davis, signature member and past president of the Southwestern Watercolor Society, began painting in watercolor over thirty years ago. He studied first with Faith Helen Foust at Eastfield Community College then with Bud Biggs. He later attended workshops with Doug Walton, Louise Cadillac, Carole Barnes, Frank Webb, Mark Mehaffey, Richard Stephens, and noted bird artist John P. O’Neil.

Davis has taught watercolor, figure drawing, and plein air sketching at Eastfield Community College, Amarillo College, Panhandle Art Center, San Angelo Museum of Art, and in his studio in Commerce. He has conducted demonstrations and workshops in Amarillo, Brownsville, Dallas, San Angelo and nine other Texas cities.

Davis believes that pigment, dissolved in water, and applied to paper produces more luminous color than any other medium. Watercolor and acrylic are mercurial however-sometimes difficult, always full of surprises. He constantly weighs the importance of original intent against unexpected opportunities.
