Watercolor Secrets You Will Learn: Atmosphere and Effects Finally Understood

"Winter's Magic, Tucquan Glen" by Glenn E. Blue

Artist Glenn E. Blue

Glenn E. Blue grew up in a family of artists in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA.  His parents were art teachers at local schools, so he learned art at a very early age.  By his teenage years Glenn was selling paintings professionally.  Glenn was in the US Navy from 1984 to 1988, and then entered the Pennsylvania State Police.

 For many years he was assigned to the Violent Felony Fugitive Task Force in Philadelphia.  Glenn served his last few years as a supervisor in Criminal Investigations.  He spent many days rushing home from crime scenes to get to his studio or art opening.  He is now retired from the State Police to pursue art.  Last month on October 2nd, 2016 Glenn was a front page story of the Reading Eagle Newspaper’s about the Amish school shooting.  Glenn was a Trooper who worked the Amish school shooting and was also commissioned to paint a memorial of the school for the police and victims in the Amish community. http://www.readingeagle.com/news/article/10-years-after-nickel-mines-tragedy-troopers-painting-a-canvas-of-sorrow

Glenn has trained in fine arts and shown in countless local, regional, national and international shows.  He has travelled to numerous places in Europe painting and collecting art.  Glenn has taken many workshops and private lessons over 35 years.  He has given lectures to artist groups and college classes and has been a judge of many art exhibitions.

Over the years his paintings have been in top watercolor exhibitions, such as; the American Watercolor Society International Juried Exhibition 2014, the National Art for the Parks Top 100, Paint The Parks, Paint America, the Pennsylvania (PWS) and Philadelphia Watercolor Society’s Annual Juried Exhibitions. Glenn was awarded the PWS Sylvan Grouse Guild Award, available to PWS signature members that earn a high number of points by winning awards at the annual juried exhibitions.

Glenn had a painting published in the nationally known Watercolor Artist magazine, December 2014 edition, listed as the “Top Art of 2014”.

His works have been shown in several galleries and he has been the subject of many newspaper articles.  He often has paintings on display in the Chadds Ford Gallery, in Chadds Ford, PA.

Glenn paints loose glowing impressionistic yet representational watercolors on his many plein air-painting trips as well in his studio.  He attempts to artistically represent his subjects without every detail described.
