Champs Elysees by John Salminen in Duluth, Minnesota. Salminen is sick. Look at his work. It is unbelievably good. Arguably the best in the entire gallery. How in the world did he make those trees! The entire painting is so well-balanced, nothing seems out of place, overdone, underdone… That lamppost that is just off-center is […]
Street People by Alessandro Andreuccetti in San Gimignano, Italy. It has been a long time since I last featured a painting by Alessandro. Long overdue for another one. Like a scene out of a day from anycity, anwhere this painting reminds me so much of the time I’ve spent in New York City on business. […]
Return of the Tall Ships by Marc Holmes in Montreal These quick sketch-like watercolors really capture the essence of these ships. As they did two years ago the first time Holmes sketched them. It makes me long for a close-by marina to sketch.
Don Javier by Leslie Redhead in Vancouver, BC. Poured watercolor fascinates me and Leslie Redhead sort of has a monopoly of the features using this technique on The Watercolor Gallery. I think the thing that fascinates me most about a poured watercolor is the planning that goes into just how the painting will be laid […]

One of those things was this beautiful Luna moth. We have these moths here in Pennsylvania and they’re really quite something. Scheirer absolutely nails nature watercolors. You […]
Video: Blade Runner in Watercolor, Part 1 by Anders Ramsell in Östersund, Sweden. What a feat! Twelve minutes of one of the best sci-fi movies of all time, Blade Runner, animated completely with watercolor paintings. Ramsell, who has seemingly come out of nowhere, has had this pieced shared by Roger Ebert, Buzzfeed, Kottke.org, and now […]
Batman by Roger Cruz in Sao Paulo, Brazil. If you couldn’t already tell – I’m somewhat of a Cruz fan. But I also noticed that there hasn’t been any pieces featured on the gallery with Batman in them. So, I consider this killing two birds with one feature. Cruz is on a tear on his […]
Backpack man by Frits Ahlefeldt in Copenhagen, Denmark. Hot off the presses! Today Ahlefeldt did some sketching in Copenhagen. Even though this is a sketch Ahlefeldt managed to capture the feeling of weight, motion, and the overall look of the subject. His entire site is full of gems.
