The beauty and wonder of watercolor lies in its inherent contradiction. At one and the same time, it radiates both density and lightness. Some of these paintings are traditional plein air and some are visionary plen air, incorporating the five senses. Note: for the past decade, I have been working exclusively in oils, so some of these watercolors were actually painted as much as 14 years ago -- although I still love watercolors and will return to them some day.
