Don Taylor’s paintings frequently employ a combination of realism and impressionism, with a touch of abstract design. Don is a retired veterinarian living in Panama City, FL since 1972. He is a signature member of fifteen nationally known Watercolor Societies as well as a juried member of the National Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society of America and Watercolor West. His awards from exhibitions throughout the USA are numerous. Much of the subject matter has come from his extensive travels around the world. Don is a superb artist whose paintings have won approximately 25 national awards. He has been published in Best of American Watermedia 2010 and 2011; Best of Worldwide Watermedia 2012, Artistic Touch 5 & 6, and International Contemporary Artists Vol I through VIII.

In this workshop, Don Taylor will place emphasis on composition and design. Students have the option of working from their own subjects or working from the instructor’s line drawings that will allow them to follow along as he demonstrates. Don works mostly in realism with use of some impressionism. He emphasizes the   transparent underpainting and use of masking which, in his opinion, is critical to a successful painting. Although Don will be demonstrating composition and design elements, he will also demonstrate various watermedia techniques. Don will individually visit each student to go over each day’s work as well as critiquing any painting/work that the student wishes to bring in. Don works on 300# Fabriano cold pressed paper and recommends that each student try it at this workshop.
