Throughout the day I often see the potential for a watercolor in things around me. I enjoy the creative journey of finding subject matter to paint and figuring out the process, techniques and materials to use, as much as I enjoy actually creating the painting.
The flow and luminosity is what first drew me to watercolor and I have been painting with it in a traditional way for over forty years. Recently I started to add other watermedia to my paintings such as gouache, acrylic and inks. I like their opacity and the contrast that it creates against transparent watercolor. Each medium has different properties and offer so many possibilities to take my work in different directions.
