Iklesies by Charles Reid. Iklesies, a watercolorist himself that lives in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, was recently at one of Charles Reid’s workshops in Port d’Alger (or the Port of Algiers on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea). It turns out Reid decided to make him the subject of one of his paintings. Reid is quite an accomplished watercolorist having […]
Grizzly Bear by Dean Crouser in Gresham, Oregon. Pardon the watermark but I respect Crouser’s decision to try to protect his art. In fact, this print is for sale on his Etsy store so by all means head over there and grab a print or two. I really like Crouser’s spotty style. Like a mosaic […]
Artspace: Linda Adelaide in Sonoma County, California. This being the first post on the WordPress.com-powered version of The Watercolor Gallery I thought it would be good to feature an Artspace of an artist that also uses WordPress.com. Check out Linda’s blog at Watercolorcandy.com.
Gamin au chien (The dog kid) by Yann Lesacher in Lamballe, France. Lesacher literally has hundreds of paintings that I could have featured. His nature paintings are extremely well detailed and are interesting studies. I chose this one because of the way he used wet technique on the background. Very well done.
Video: Follow the White Whale by Lora Zombie in Russia. There is an unwritten rule here at The Watercolor Gallery. You can never feature enough Lora Zombie. This latest video is just awesome.
Horseshoe Crab by David Scheirer in Washington, D.C. Scheirer, the landscaper-cum-painter, is quickly becoming one of my favorite watercolorists. In fact, I plan on trying my hand at his style at my next session. He has a pretty great blog and Etsy shop (due to reopen soon I hope). /reblogged via digital-entity.
Cheetah Brothers by Alison Nicholls in Port Chester, NY. Nicholls does it again. She’s been featured here on the gallery many times. Oh, and don’t miss my interview with her from over a year ago. (Source: http://nichollswildlifeart.blogspot.com/2012/05/cheetah-brothers-field-sketch-by.html)
Process: Squared Diner by Peter Koval in Brooklyn, New York. Aspiring watercolorist and professional photographer Peter Koval provides some excellent process images on his Flickr account. I love seeing an artist’s process.
Untitled by Jen P. Harris in Hudson, New York. I love when artists work with a limited color palette. Some of my favorite paintings use only one or two colors. Harris pulls of this technique beautifully. Harris is on Tumblr and Twitter too. /via queercontemporaryart.
Cloudy Eye by Oriol Angrill Jordà in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. In Jordà’s Blendscapes series he creates portraits blending in scapes like waterfalls and mountainsides. It creates a rather marvelous combination.
