The Alamo Danville Artists’ Society is set to host artist and illustrator Tom Taneyhill for a live oil painting demonstration at their next meeting.
“I’m an illustrator and fine artist,” Taneyhill said in his artists’ statement. “The art of being an illustrator is the ability to create within parameters set by the client. The fine artist attempts to make art itself an individual statement. I see my own vision as a union of both principles.”
Taneyhill is set to discuss three stages of the artistic process through his demonstration: Concept, ideas and composition; underpainting and adjustment; and brushwork, color palette and “knowing when to stop”.
The free demonstration is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. next Tuesday (Jan. 11) at the Alamo Women’s Club. More information is available here.
