2010-05-11 · By Editor
Recognized as one of the Master Painters of the World award winning watercolorists, Paul Jackson, will be teaching a workshop in Long Beach, CA, July 16-18 at the Exhibit [A] Gallery in downtown Long Beach.
Paul teaches dozens of workshops every year — this will be his first in Long Beach. The subject matter will be a dramatic landscape.
Workshop Coordinator, Debbie Lewis, a Long Beach resident will be hosting Paul and his wife Marla, during their three-day stay in Long Beach.
“Paul is an artist whose work I have admired since I first started painting in the 1990s,” Debbie said. “The light effects he creates are beyond compare. The fact that he is coming to Long Beach to share his talent and knowledge is an experience no Southern California watercolor artist should miss.”
Paul’s work can be seen on the Paul Jackson website.
Jackson’s artwork has been on the cover of the Artist’s magazine four times in recent years. Other media featuring Jackson ’s work include: American Artist, Watercolor magazine, Watercolor Magic, Watercolor Artist, Forbes Magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, NPR, CBS News, The Baltimore Sun, The St Louis Post, The Kansas City Star, and TWA’s Ambassador Magazine
In 2008, Jackson was the featured speaker at the International Watercolor Masters Invitational in Lushan, China, during the Olympic Games. In 2009, he served as the invited juror for the American Watercolor Society’s 142nd annual international exhibition.
Jackson is the author of “Painting Spectacular Light Effects in Watercolor” from North Light Books. Paul is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society and a signature member of the American Watercolor Society.
A prolific artist with lots of spirit, Paul Jackson is one of America’s greatest contemporary watercolorists. In all categories, landscapes, cityscapes, portraits, architectural, still life and the just plain wonderous, Paul puts genuine emotion, as well as artistic planning and finesse, into every painting.
