Byron Carr lives in the house his grandfather built on the Contoocook River.  As a child he liked to draw the natural world around his home.  He attended Vesper George School of Art after high school and  pursued a career in the building trades but always had the urge to be an artist.

In 1990 when Byron was 40 yrs old,  he retaught himself to draw and started painting with watercolor.  Some of his paintings are large, 4ft x 6ft watercolors.  On the advice of a well known artist he also started teaching.  In ’95 oil painting was added to his routine.  Richard Whitney told him, “nature is our greatest teacher, go out and paint on location!”  Hundreds of paintings have been painted on location since then.  Most of those have been done in the White Mountains.

The Color of Snow: Weekend Painting Workshop with David Lussier, March 2 & 3

With Award winning painter, David Lussier

 

Learn to paint the beauty of a winter landscape in the comfort of a warm studio in the heart of the White Mountains!  Learn the general guidelines for painting snow scenes that include choosing the right palette for the task, understanding how to capture the high key effect of bright sunlight and how reflected light gets bounced around a snow covered landscape.

David will begin each day with a one hour demonstration and discussion of his working methods in an orderly step by step process of simplifying shapes, color and value to achieve a successful painting infused with color and light. Students will work from their own photos or choose a photo from our vast library of 8x10 winter landscape references. David will offer individual help to each student towards a successful painting each day. Class size is limited to 10. Deadline for sign-up, Feb 25.

Saturday & Sunday, March 2 & 3, 10am-4pm,  $275 

David Lussier is an award winning contemporary impressionist and nationally recognized plein air painter and workshop instructor. He is a painter in the purist sense of the word. In his poetic and intimate oil landscapes he strives to capture the essence and sense of place of his subject matter. His use of bold broad brushwork brings the surfaces to life and begs the viewer to return for a second look. David started his career as a commercially trained illustrator, but he quickly realized that his passion was in the fine arts. He has been painting professionally for more than twenty five years, has garnered more than 75 prizes for his work and is in numerous private and corporate collections throughout the United States. His work has been featured in many art journals and he is a professional member of some of the finest art associations and groups in the country. David is also an official U.S. Open artist for the United States Golf Association. Four of his paintings hang in the permanent collection of the USGA Museum in Far Hills New Jersey.
