Traveling with Watercolor Series-Series 13
My approach to watercolor painting has developed from the plein aire experience. It keeps me sharp in drawing and observation skills as well as developing on the spot interpretations of my environment and my personal reaction to that environment. Spontaneity is a keyword yet my understanding of the principles and elements of design are invaluable guidelines that dominate my consciousness during the painting experience. If I don't finish the painting on site, I will finish or rework it in my studio, use it as a study for developing a new painting, or use it as a base for an acrylic painting. Watercolor painting is a valued experience with its own expansiveness and risk taking adventures. Prints are available.
