5th St, Boulder, CO
I respond to impressions of the world around me through my figurative and landscape watercolor painting. In my portraits and figures, I use both direct painting and glazing to achieve fresh but realistic images.
I want my subjects to come to life for the viewer. I try to capture a moment in time and transform an ordinary subject into something striking. Lighting, color, and atmosphere are the elements I manipulate to achieve this effect. I choose photos with strong lighting, play with color, and let the paint flow in interesting ways to add excitement to the image.
