Bernard, an accomplished artist and photographer, will demonstrate creating a painting from a photograph. You can see more of his work at:
Bernard Fallon grew up in England and attended the Liverpool College of Art and Leicester University’s School of Photography. A keen interest in the visual world has taken him to many places to create pictures – from the Aran Islands to the Sahara, Jerusalem to Singapore. He is also a published photographer. As a teenager, Fallon started photographing the grim social realities of Liverpool life. Sixty of these black and white images were exhibited by the Liverpool National Museum in 2007, as part of the city’s 800th birthday celebrations.
Fallon is a member of the California Art Club and a charter member of the newly created Pastel Society of Southern California. He has demonstrated his painting to art organizations all over Southern California. He has taught many pastel, oil and watercolor workshops, including some at the UC Riverside Extension. He is currently teaching painting classes at the Palos Verdes Art Center.
