February 10th Meeting – Larry Cannon will Demo Plein Air Watercolor Technique


Larry Cannon will demonstrate his plein air watercolor technique at the monthly El Cerrito Art Association meeting at 7:00 p.m. on Feb. 10 at the El Cerrito Community Center.

Larry started painting in 1994, and pursued that passion in parallel with his architectural career. He feels a strong kinship in studying and learning from the works of the historical masters of watercolor, such as J.M.W. Turner, Thomas Girtin, Winslow Homer, and Percy Gray, as well as fine contemporary watercolorists, including Joseph Zbukvic, David Curtis, Trevor Chamberlain, and Robert Wade.

Larry’s work has been exhibited at the San Diego Museum of Art, the Weismann Museum of Art in Malibu, the Bennington Vermont Center for the Arts, the Laguna Art Museum, the Oceanside Museum of Art, and in multiple exhibits at the Triton Museum of Art and the Napa Valley Museum. He has also been included in other well-respected art exhibitions, including those at the California Art Club, Sausalito Art Festival, Napa Valley Arts Festival, and the California Watercolor Association.

Larry is an Artist Member of the California Art Club and a Signature Member of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (LPAPA) and the California Watercolor Association.

Represented by Lee Youngman Galleries in Calistoga (Napa Valley), California.
