I think was the early 90’s when I religiously watched Tom Lynch’s program (before we could record). It was my early days with watercolor and not only could this guy paint, but he was really attractive.
When I learned that he was giving a workshop in Orlando, I rounded up several other artists and we took off to spend two days painting (and fantasizing).
The workshop began with Tom’s description of his lovely wife, so I guessed that a lot of women felt the same way we did and he was making sure we packed up our fantasies and got to work.
He was a very good teacher and did not tolerate any whining or chatting. We worked.
“Fog on the River” was painted on a new type of watercolor paper that allowed the “fog” to appear with gentle brushing with a toothbrush and blotting the paper. The painting now hangs in a New York City home just off Central Park.
I don’t hear anything about Tom Lynch these days, but I hope he’s still out there doing workshops and creating a stir.
