Deborah Paris it a painter based in Texas who works in a tonalist manner — with controlled palettes, restrained values and soft edges — though she sometimes incorporates more directly naturalistic elements and occasionally works with a brighter palette.

Her favored subjects are woodlands, streams and fields, painted with a sensitive eye to mood, atmosphere and the power of visual suggestion.

Paris offers online instruction in painting through a separate dedicated Landscape Atelier website along with painter Robert Wellings, who also works in a tonalist manner. They offer online classes, private lessons, critiques and mentorship.

In addition, Paris is the author of a recently published book, Painting the Woods: Nature, Memory and Metaphor that is both a personal account of her experiences while spending a year in Lennox Woods in northeast Texas and her creative process while painting the landscape there.

Also available is a book from 2014, Deborah Paris: Lennox Woods – The Ancient Forest that is also about those experiences but was apparently authored by other writers. (Bookshop.org link, Amazon link)

Under the “Blog” navigation link on her website, you will find three blogs; one current, one archived and one devoted to the teaching atelier.

There is an interview with Paris as part of the Savvy Painter podcast.
