VIRTUAL MEETING: DEMO BY JAMES NUTT

Thursday, October 15, 7-8:30 p.m.

 

You will be sent a link via email inviting you to watch the live demo starting at 7 p.m.
The demo will take about an hour followed by a half hour question and answer session. 

James Nutt is an architect, artist, instructor and constant sketcher. He practices architecture at BWBR in St Paul and is a teacher of watercolor and urban sketching. Sharing a studio in the Northrup King Building he participates in monthly open studios, Art-A-Whirl, commissions and art demonstrations.

James draws and paints constantly and carries a small kit everywhere to capture the story and energy of places and ordinary things. He focuses on energy and depth through deliberate proportion and harmony rather than accuracy. His work covers a wide range from abstract to illustration but always with an emphasis on relationships and story telling.

In his demo, James will do a brief introduction to his process and then walk us through a painting filmed onsite while he talks through his strategy, tools, and tips. There will be a question and answer period at the end. He will share a blog post that explains his water color kit, brushes and everyday tools at www.nuttdraws.com

“I love what can be done with an energetic line, an eye on proportions, and just 3 primaries to mix from. These constraints allow me to concentrate on narrative relationships and help squeeze art into the rare still places in the day.” James Nut
