Ann Templeton

Ann Templeton
1936-2011

Ann was one of the founders and the leader of Alla Prima International.  A wonderful teacher and artist, Ann is remembered through her works and through the many students and friends she helped over the decades.

Thirty years ago my mindset became a focus - to thoroughly understand, breathe, smell and taste the landscape. A long painting endeavor began. It continues each day with new intensities, new subleties, new messages and new creations taking place.

In the meantime I have come to understand the magnificent application of paint to a surface, and even more so have learned to enjoy the trip rather than the product

I wish to touch my viewer with some of the beauty that surrounds us - to let others understand some of my vision.

Ann's books, THE ART OF ANN TEMPLETON:  A STEP BEYOND and COLOR AND BEYOND, as well as a number of instructional DVDs and videotapes, are now availableFor more information, visit www.anntempleton.com.

Ann's pastel painting DVD, ABSTRACTING THE LANDSCAPE IN PASTEL, is available from Artist Productions.  For more information, visit www.artistproductions.net.
