Watercolor is my favorite medium because it constantly surprises me. It has an illusive quality which can be humbling, frustrating, spontaneous and exciting, sometimes all at once.
Most of my paintings take several days to complete because I work wet-in-wet and the layers take time to dry and evolve. My work starts at the scene, but I finish most paintings in the studio.
I love the transparency and granulation of pigment and the magic of glazing one color over another. I sometimes add pen and ink, graphite, gouache, pastel, and watercolor pencil to my paintings.
When I paint I strive to capture a sense of place as I have experienced it. Perhaps my paintings will evoke your own memories of a similar scene.
