Bryant will discuss and demonstrate her approach to painting challenging subjects. The components of every painting are abstract shapes. She finds the practice of seeing purely in terms of shape, value, and color to be a tremendous aid when working within the domain of realism. By taking time for close observation and clearly articulating a plan, Bryant can successfully capture even the most complex subjects in a way that’s faithful to her intention and personal painting style. This approach works well whether she's painting tight or loose.

Bryant will also share a brief slideshow and talk about some of her experiences as an Artist-in-Residence for the National Park Service. These range from the conventional—solo hiking, sketching—to the more adventurous, like arctic fish research and a bison roundup.

This year's juror, Jessica L Bryant, is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society and Northwest Watercolor Society. Her award-winning work reflects her passion for nature. Jessica has been a frequent Artist in Residence for the National Park Service and other wilderness based organizations. Jessica’s work can be found in a number of art magazines, including Watercolor Artist, Southwest Art, L’Art de L’Aquarelle, Art Chowder and Splash.

Always excited to share knowledge, she has been teaching classes and workshops since 2009.
