Tom Lockhart is a Representational, landscape artist. I feel that solid drawing, correct values and colors, along with the atmospheric effects of light within the landscape, are some of the keys to a visually stimulating and interesting image.
Painting from life, (En-Plein-Air as often as possible), helps to reinforce these visual stimulants when it comes to painting the landscape.
I've been working as a professional artist for over 30 years. I am primarily a self taught artist. I have taken a variety of workshops from top professional working artists, but feel that nothing takes the place of study, hard work and painting hundreds and hundreds of paintings. Several recent awards include: Top 100 Finalists in NOAPS Online Exhibitions, & Merit Award Winner, OPA Western Regional, and Best of Show in 3 Plein-Air Competitions in Colorado. Awarded Region II in the National Arts for the Parks. Featured in, Art of the West, Southwest Art, and American Artists Watercolor Magazines.
