Tom Hill was born in 1925 in Texas. Tom is a noted representational watercolorist of southwest landscapes and Mexican and cowboy figures.
“A lot of people feel that watercolor is a ‘lightweight’ medium,” he observes, “one that’s okay for sketches and studies, but not for major works and one that is not permanent.”
Tom is a noted author of technique and watercolor lesson books such as: Painting Watercolors on Location, Color for the Watercolor Painter, The Watercolorist’s Complete Guide to Color, and The Watercolor Painter’s Problem Book.
