The Art of Ann Templeton

A Step Beyond
By Michael JohnsonAnn Templeton



The Art of Ann Templeton explores the world and work of Ann Templeton. With over 120 full-color plates, the book illustrates her use of materials and techniques, her travels, and her approach to workshops, as well as her take on what it is to live the life of an artist. Primarily a plein air painter, Ann Templeton has developed techniques over 30 years of painting to capture the landscape quickly and to interpret it with her unique vision of color and design. She has introduced many students to her award-winning techniques in workshops she has taught. Her studio is in Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico.
