'Valley Landscapes' by Roger Tatum

Roger Tatum uses watercolor to transform his subjects into expressive and impressionistic paintings as in this piece, ‘Valley Landscapes.’ His work captures the mountains and rural life, as well as coastal havens and cityscapes.

The High Country Watermedia Society is hosting a workshop with Roger Tatum on July 13, following its monthly meeting. This workshop is $35 for members of HCWS and $70 for non-members.

Tatum, of Bolivia, is an alum of Ringling School of Art, Roosevelt Academy and the American Academy of Art. Now retired after 40 years in the ad industry, his art reflects the mountains and rural life, as well as coastal havens and cityscapes. Tatum uses watercolor to transform his subjects into expressive and impressionistic paintings.

During this workshop, students can expect to learn the key points of landscape design, composition, color harmony and atmosphere. Tatum will also speak on the importance of value studies, how watercolor is unlike other artistic mediums and using personal imagination to create a unique perspective using a reference photo.
