Ted Houston Watercolor/printmaking demo Feb. 21 in Richardson

TedHouston-168

The next Richardson Civic Art Society meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 21, 2017.

The February Demonstrator will be Ted Houston, demonstrating watercolor/print making. The meeting starts at 6:30.

Ted combines a skill in drawing with a love for color to create emotionally evocative work in a variety of media including oil painting, water color, drawing, and printmaking.

A modern renaissance man, Ted started his study of life drawing at the Philadelphia Academy of Art while earning his PhD in Physics at the University of Pennsylvania. On moving to Dallas, he continued his study of life drawing with Roger Winters, and later with Bill Comodor. Ted has also studied painting and printmaking at Brookhaven College for the Arts. His work has won many awards including several best of shows, and has been exhibited in juried shows with the Dallas Business Council for the Arts, the Richardson Civic Art Society, and at the Brookhaven studio gallery. For a while, Ted taught drawing at Ole Podrida. Much of Ted’s work is noted for capturing an emotion while also providing interest and beauty to the eye.

In Ted’s own words “I like to use oil paint thinly in a watercolor style, sometimes building up layers while keeping the freshness and gesture of the subject. My love of watercolor probably stems from my mother being a watercolorist. I like the immediacy of the medium with the ability to freely capture a gesture or to render a detail. It is a delight to see the flow of color on the paper. My main interest in printmaking is to explore form and color as enabled by the medium, rather than to run multiple copies of the same image. Thus, while have run some editions, most of my prints are monotypes (a single image) or mono prints (unique prints formed from a common image base, e.g. color variations of a screen print).”
