Judy studied classical drawing and Russian impressionist oil painting for eight years with Patricia Raab, a Seattle artist and teacher who studied with Ron Lucas, who apprenticed with Nicolai Fechin for many years.
She is a member of the Westport Art Group, Westport, Massachusetts, the New York Figure Study Guild, Rochester, New York, and the Greater Kansas City Art Association, Kansas City, Kansas.
She studied for the past five with Steve Carpenter, Rochester, New York. Steve’s exquisite classical painting instruction moved Judy to a new level.
Her study with Patricia Raab created a love of color relationships and the Russian impressionist style. The luscious color harmonies and composition of Ilya Repin’s “Sadko and the Undersea Kingdom”, the works of Vitaly Sadorov, Nicolai Timkov and Nicolai Fechin are her inspiration. The emotions evoked by the stark lines and lonely people of Edward Hopper, the wide open fields and happy little coupe of Z.Z. Wei spur her art.
She has taught classical drawing and oil painting at the Westport Art Group. Her work is signed Judyfallriver and Eric Kson.
