STEPHEN QUILLER

JANUARY 21-24, 2008
Color and Watermedia

 


Stephen Quiller is an internationally known painter who works primarily in watermedia, monotypes, and intaglio printmaking. He is best known for his innovative approach to watermedia painting: watercolor, gouache, acrylic, casein and their combinations, and for his use of color. He has written five books in the years from 1983 to 1999, all published by Watson-Guptill:  Water Media Techniques, Water Media: Processes and Possibilities, Color Choices, Acrylic Painting Techniques, Painter's Guide to Color

His research and development of a color wheel for painters called the “Quiller Wheel” is now used by thousands of painters throughout the world. In addition, he has developed twelve instructional video tapes produced by Crystal Productions, as well as two tapes produced by the Richeson Company in 2004.

Stephen Quiller has painted in many parts of the world, but is primarily known for his work done at or near his home in the high mountainous country of southern Colorado.  These subjects include beaver ponds, snow shadows, water patterns, wild iris, and mountain rhythms, capturing the spirit of the San Juans.  Through his painting, he has become a Signature member of the American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Rocky Mountain National Watermedia, and Society for Painters in Acrylic and Casein, among others.  In 1997, he received the Greathouse medal and cash award in the 130th American Watercolor Society exhibition.

Stephen's paintings have been on the covers and the subject of articles in many leading art magazines. He has also been an invited juror for a number of regional and national art exhibitions.

A popular workshop instructor, he teaches his approach to color, watermedia, composition, and on-location painting, throughout North America and internationally.

Stephen shows in the Mission Gallery of Taos, New Mexico, and during the summer months he and his wife, Marta, operate their Quiller Gallery in Creede, Colorado.
                                  

About Stephen Quiller ACRYLICS from Jack Richeson Company:

This year we are introducing the new Stephen Quiller Acrylic line of paint imported by The Jack Richeson Company. There are 93 colors in this line that come in 60 ml. tubes and 120 ml. jars as well as selected colors that come in 250 ml. and 500 ml. jars. The colors work with my color system and all list their complementary color, chemical composition, and lightfast rating on the back. I have also worked with the manufacturer to make a new violet called Quiller Violet that will complement perfectly with the yellows. There is not another company that makes a violet that is this “color note,” and I feel it is vitally important to work with my color system!
