OCTOBER 22, 2024 – GEOFF ALLEN

MEETING START TIME: 7:00 (Pacific time)

This is the spectacular Geoff Allen’s first demo at NWWS, and it will very exciting. As an artist, plein air painting allows his art to showcase two of his greatest passions: enthusiasm for being outdoors and the beauty of watercolor. Plein air painting keeps his focus intensely on the work while promoting a sense of mystery and spontaneity. His artwork reflects his total embrace and energetic interpretation of the scene in front of him. Watercolor echos the idea of immediacy and nature, and can be both a blessing and a curse. Geoff loves that aspect of art making, when something is slightly out of his control and a challenge, allowing him to feel he is playing with mysterious forces beyond his understanding.

His art journey began with a degree in Economics and with a passion for black and white photography, but a pivotal moment came during a postgraduate summer watercolor class. He was thrilled and hooked! After a busy life in Los Angeles, including scenic painting, contemporary art, gallery management, poured pastel sculptural wall reliefs, poured plaster, fiberglass, conceptual performance, folk art, commercial illustration, and much more, Geoff understands the contributions and influence those disciplines have on his passion for plein air watercolor painting. He embraces and appreciates life, nature, and the exciting transformation that happens on paper.

Currently living in a beautiful coastal town north of San Diego with his wife, Jennifer, who is also an artist. Geoff’s list of awards is lengthy, and includes many prestigious, first place honors. He is also a highly regarded exhibition juror and has been published in several art magazines including “Plein Air Magazine” and “Watercolor Artist Magazine”.

Be sure to join us for this exciting evening with one of watercolor’s very best.
