June 30, 2010

ARC Master™ Paul McCormack is offering a 5 day workshop at McCormack Studios in Wappingers Falls, NY.

Daughter of Hope
by Paul McCormack
Portrait in Watercolor - 5 Day Workshop July 28 – August 1, 2010

For the exacting realism found in Paul's work, most of day one will focus primarily on the drawing aspect of the portrait. With instruction on the proper use of angles, plumb lines and relative measurement, students will learn how to acquire correct proportions in order to achieve a likeness of the model. As the course continues, this intensive workshop will then focus on painting. Lectures will include basic color theory, how to see and execute correct value relations, proper treatment of edges, and so much more. Demonstrations in watercolor techniques will include wet into wet, glazing, and Paul's signature dry brush technique.

It's Time to Pre Order Your ARC Salon Catalog

June 4, 2010

"...Once again the quality of work submitted to this year's competition was overwhelming....

Since it's inception 6 years ago, the ARC Salon™ has evolved considerably. One of the most significant changes has been in the overall quality of the work submitted, which continues to impress us anew each year and makes the finalist selection process ever more challenging. Last year the finalists were narrowed down to 204 works and this year we struggled even to get the number down to the 368 that were eventually submitted to the judges for award consideration. We then removed an additional 82 images that did not receive any votes, giving you the 286 images displayed here. For the first time this year, we added an animal category which produced 31 finalists from an enthusiastic and talented new pool of artists. If there was ever a year to purchase a catalogue, this would be it. With over 80 more works than previous years, this expanded catalogue will display over 300 full-color images from some of the best realist artists in the world." --Paul McCormack, Executive Director of Programs Click here to Pre order this year's ARC Salon Catalog with full color plates of all the winners and finalists.
