Join us for The Figure Outdoors, a demonstration and lunch, presented by the Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild with artist, Tom Balderas, a renowned American impressionistic painter, Wednesday, September 18, 2019, 10:30am – 2:00pm at the art studio of Suzy Schaefer in Rancho Santa Fe. The enlightening demonstration in oils will be using photographs to paint a person in an outdoor setting in an impressionist style, and share tips on the process used to create such creative art works.
Balderas grew up in Torrance, California, and lived only a few miles from the ocean, which has made nature, along with his family, the main inspiration of his paintings. Balderas attended Loyola Marymount University, where he studied film production and art. After graduating, he worked several years for NBC Productions and helped make many made-for-television movies. He then began studying under the tutelage of his photographer father, as well as Joseph Mendez, master painter and teacher. Balderas considers the time spent studying with Mendez to be the cornerstone of his growth as a painter, and has also been influenced by many painters in this area.
