A resident of Central Florida, Tom has been commissioned by government agencies, corporations, environmental groups, clubs, and private collectors. In answer to popular demand, he typically produces his watercolor landscapes in a series of three or five paintings around a specific theme.
His art can be found internationally in many private and corporate collections, including commissioned paintings displayed in the Florida State Capital Building, Walt Disney World Corporation, Marriott Corporation, Omni Corporation, and Museums. Tom's work has been featured in many books and on magazine covers as well as posters and brochures.
Tom shares his passion for art and love of nature with students of varying skill levels through international workshops, demonstrations, and instructional dvds.
"Tom Jones is a painter who possesses such power that by dipping his brushes in colored water only he gives us the feeling of being before nature itself. Master of his craft, he obtains extremely difficult effects such as moving our soul at the sight of a beam of sunlight piercing through the foliage of the forest. That is magic; That is a great painter."
Pablo Sansegundo-Castaneda
(artistic grandson of Joaquin Sorolla)

Lionel Sanchez
"Rural Subjects utilizing representation and abstract shapes"Lionel Sanchez

Artist Statement: I was a kid when my older brother would draw for me. I was fascinated with what he could do with a pencil and my fascination has grown into a passion and a sense of necessity ever since. Drawing and painting are necessary for my life. I have turned this passion into painting. When viewing my work, you will see sketches, or drawings if you will, with the utilization of abstract shapes. This is the process of my work.
My past years worth of life experiences and challenges are evidenced in my paintings. I have been a draftsman and project manager for 31 years and now in my retirement teach watercolor workshops. Employing the elements and principles of design, I strive for good composition.
My goal is to spark an interest in my work, perhaps a sense of the wonderment that I feel when I complete what I deem to be a successful piece; an emotional connection that opens a dialogue between artist and viewer.
I am always eager to share and discuss my paintings with others in hopes that each piece will elicit an emotional response and a desire to investigate the painting further.
My mediums are graphite, acrylic, pen and ink with watercolors being my primary medium. I prefer to paint en plein-air with photography as studio reference . . . and, of course, imagination!

Sue Primeau
"Is It Done Yet? Does It Need Something Else?"

In this Workshop, Sue will provide guidance for artists on projects that they want to work on.  Sue will help each artist with suggestions about how to know IF their painting is done, and, if not,how to finish it.

Sue Primeau

Workshop Contact: Judith Callison, judithc99@gmail.com, phone is 352 476 6131

About Sue Primeau

Sue refers to her work as abstract reality.  She is passionate about the world in which we live and the beauty that surrounds our everyday life.  It is this readily available subject where she finds her inspiration.  Being that she works primarily in watercolor, a medium she prefers not to control, she often begins by letting the shapes and colors occur spontaneously with little or no guidance.  Sue then studies the resulting image to determine how she will  develop the painting.  
Sue loves to teach watercolor and takes great joy in helping others realize their innate artistic and creative talents.  The questions and challenges of her students drive Sue to explore her own work from many different perspectives.

Sue's originals, giclées, and prints sell largely by word of mouth and she's been commissioned for a number of private works.  Sue exhibits at Artist-Alley Gallery in downtown Ocala as well as numerous juried and non-juried art shows.  She's been licensed on greeting cards and many of her works and painting lessons are published in four how-to books by internationally known, WI artist, Karlyn Holman on the subject of watercolor painting.  Sue has won a number of awards for her work and continues to strive for excellence in all her artistic endeavors. 

Aside from painting Sue loves to teach watercolor locally and abroad.  She finds great joy in helping others realize their innate artistic and creative talents.  The questions and challenges of her students drive Sue to explore her own work from many different perspectives.

Students will gain new skills and confidence working with shadows, light sources, creating glow and more. Lynn provides handouts, reference materials, and lots of personal attention.

Kathy Durdin
One Day Portraiture Workshop


"Christina Kimono"

Kathy Durdin’s nationally renowned portraits come alive on the page. She captures the one essential spark about the subject that will make her painting successful. The images which inspire her most touch her emotionally, they are rarely posed. Her style is fresh, quick and immediate. This expressiveness takes advantage of the watercolor medium.

One of Ms. Durdin’s passions is color. She employs color to drive emotion. Her experiments with color involve unusual, unexpected color combinations. She usually applies colors separately, then allows them to blend and mingle on the paper.

Ms. Durdin is a signature member of Florida, Southern, Texas, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Tallahassee and Florida Suncoast Watercolor Societies. She is a past-president of Florida Watercolor Society and currently serves as Director of Operations.
