DEMO

Llano Fine Art Guild

 

Barry Selman of Granbury, Texas will give a hands-on watercolor demo at the Llano Fine Art Guild to be held Monday January 9th at 10:00 am. 

Barry Selman started painting almost 40 years ago.Typically, an artist gravitates to one or more mediums: oil, acrylic, sculpture, collage, drawing, watercolor, glass, pottery, and the list goes on. Selman's choice is and has been watercolor from the beginning. 

In January of 2016 Selman retired from the oil fields and really started to concentrate on his art. Retirement gave him an opportunity to take classes from the top three water colorists in the US: Mel Slabin,Tony Van Hasslet, and Tony Couch. He is excited to share the tips and techniques he has learned along the way. 


Selman says, "Most of my painting ideas come from glimpses of an old building, a barn falling down, or a windmill turning with just a gentle breath of air.  Most people pass by these scenes and never really look, but when I look, I see amazing shapes, beautiful colors, and wonderful textures; at that moment, a painting is born. One thing I have learned is that you do not have to travel to the far corners of the globe to find beauty and inspiration.  You will discover scenes worthy of painting anywhere you go, very often not far from home."

Barry Selman believes that even if one doesn't choose to become a professional artist, creating art can play a significant and rewarding role throughout life.

The demo cost is $5 and includes a pot luck lunch at noon. The regular monthly meeting of the Llano Fine Art Guild is held at 1:00 pm the first Monday of the month.  The Llano Fine Art Guild is a non profit organization helping keep the arts alive in Llano for over 50 years.
