Watercolor and Acrylic Art
My view of the world around me
As a self taught artist my work attempts to depict the world around all of us, people, places and things. I am continually trying to vary my subjects but alas, certain things catch my eye more than others. See my world in art presented here; hope you enjoy the visit.
Painting my views of the world
Fine art as I see it......
“Art is in the eye of the viewer - what is pleasing to one is often different to another. It has been forty five years since I started with pen & ink drawings and nearly 20 years developing color through watercolors and acrylics. Yet I am still only beginning to achieve the flow and freeness in expression that artists must have; my technical training and background continues to anchor me. I see art as based on contrast with deep tonal values and what I see around me; I like realism. My aunt, a trained career artist, once told me that taking art lessons or artist workshops can expand my knowledge and understanding of techniques but if I have my own technique I should stick with it. She, however, didn’t particularly like realism and worked more in the abstract. I was encouraged to strive for more freeness of expression, to be more like my technically trained father. But alas, I am only an engineer, he was an architect! I hope you are pleased with my work."
