Thomas Bucci demonstrates watercolor in front of Baxters 1892 323 Pollock Street New Bern
May 15 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
I’ve chosen watercolor its ability to quickly suggest form with loose washes and conjure the illusion of detail with crisp brushwork. This approach to watercolor requires me to work quickly. I’m willing to take the risks associated with that to realize its potential.
Sometimes a landscape serves up a ready painting idea and I use it directly. More often ideas come from something less complete; a glimpse of atmospheric effects or sunlight landing on a surface. I paint at every opportunity, putting these ideas down on paper.
There’s a feature article on my work in Feb/Mar 2020 Issue of PleinAir Magazine entitled “The City As Muse.”
