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 […]
Luna Moth by David Scheirer in Washington, D.C. Scheirer recently took a trip to Maine and was inspired by many of the things he saw and photographed there. 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 […]
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.
The Great Wave of Homework by K. Ryan Henisey in Los Angeles, California. As a riff on Hokusai’s The Great Wave Henisey shows how much homework he gives his students. He is a first grade teacher and, dare I say it, a heckuva artist. Love this. I love that The Watercolor Gallery is now part […]
Great Blue Heron by Leslie Redhead in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Leslie recently held two workshops (one on Quadra Island – lucky lady) and for one of those workshops she did this Great Blue Heron. She uses a combination of techniques on this piece including gravity pouring. Also, I’m pretty much addicted to watch Cornell Labs’ […]
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 […]
