"Potting Shed"

Artist's Statement

These watercolors are an act of love and since they are so labor intensive (sometimes taking up to eight weeks) I am only able to produce 5 or 6 paintings every year. I use only the highest quality materials available. The original watercolors are painted on Arches or Lanaquerelle 300lb. hot press paper. I work very realistically from digital photos that I take, print and use for reference. Many layers of sheer glazes give a luminosity to the color. Working only with primary colors and mixing all the colors from those three basic colors I am able to achieve a very rich and varied palette. Light and shadow are very important to me. In order to please those who would like to purchase a print, I have gone full circle...back to digital. Please read below about the giclée prints.
