I specialize in Watercolor
Check out my website!
While my watercolor paintings cover many subjects, from whimsical farm animals to boats, landscapes and swamp scenes, the approach & technique are consistent. I keep it transparent by applying a liquid mask, then use wet-into-wet & finally flat wash techniques.
Watercolor, being less “forgiving,” presents that special challenge that keeps me always wanting to learn and create more. The transparency, the airy quality that a watercolor possesses, and the freshness obtained by touching the paper once, is what I strive to maintain. Because watercolors tend to dry lighter, my style of painting has a stronger punch in value and color intensity; I believe that if it looks right wet, it's wrong! Also, I believe that you should plan like a turtle and paint like a rabbit allowing some room for spontaneity. My focus is on strong design, the juxtaposition of colors, and the interaction between light and shadow. As shapes work themselves into patterns of value and light, the painting becomes more a poetic statement than a literal representation.
