Deanne Lemley studied under the fine tutelage of:
Under scholarship with Infamous Russian Artist and teacher, Sergei Bongart
Bill Reese Oil Painters of America, O.P.A.
Jerry Stitt AWS, American Watercolor Society, A.W.S.
Rex Brandt and Joan Irving, A.W.S., Charles Reed, National Academy of Fine Art
Robert Wood, A.W.S.
Deanne has been teaching for 30 years in the use of watercolor and oil and successfully ran a private art school in her studio in Redmond, Washington. It has often been said that the instructor learns more about painting (or whatever it is they are teaching) than the students, so true.
Deanne paints in the impressionist tradition, you will notice not every detail provided by nature is included in her artwork. This is intentional to leave room for the eye of the viewer to interpret each piece using their own imagination. That way, the viewer is invited to participate in the process visually. If everything in the painting is “boned out”, you may as well take a photograph.
