Although I primarily work with oils, I have a love affair with watercolors. I work on location, en plein air, as well as in the studio. Often my studio work is from memories, quick and spontaneous statements without the restriction of working from reference.
I relish in the stark contrasts, the elegant soft passages and the atmospheric effects which watercolor so boldly exemplifies. Occasionally, I work from oil sketches to produce watercolors which often produce a more direct and honest statement than the plein air oil. Watercolors are painted with passion and the energy speaks to the viewer in a soulful way.
