Color

Part of the program that related to color observation employed these slides in which Tom's face was lit by different types of light and from different directions. The white paint illustrated how much local color is still a factor, even in bright sunlight.

Tom was exposed to the teaching of color with Henry Hensche over thirty years ago in Cape Cod.
Two other artists that Nash holds in high regard, Cedric Egeli and Nelson Shanks also studied with
Henry. In fact it was Cedric who introduced them to each other. Tom took a bit of time during the
color portion of the class to explain Henry's approach to studying color by beginning with simple
arrangements of blocks out of doors in the sun.

Tom contributed to a recent book on color by Caroline Jasper entitled
Powercolor: Master Color Concepts for All Media
. It's published by Watson Guptill.
In this excerpt he is painting Dr. Raymond Morrissey in his studio.
