Watercolors are simply finely ground pigments suspended in a water soluble binder produced from tree resin. They are sometimes associated with the work of children, but are in fact, brilliantly
utilized by many, many contemporary artists and by revered
American artists such as Homer, Sargent and Wyeth.
Watercolors are prized for their transparent nature and ability to simulate the illusion of light, they can also be used opaquely to differentiate and enhance the solidity of key
elements within a painting.
I don't really paint with watercolors, I partner with them.
Together, we try to arrive at a mutually desirable outcome!
This site is meant to be a celebration of
this beautiful and emotive medium
as well as a showcase for some of my own adventures
What exactly are watercolors and
why are they so captivating?
