I find watercolors to be the ideal medium to paint landscape in plein air. I paint at daybreak and around an hour before sunset, mostly because the light at these times of day is richer and more challenging for me. My watercolor paintings could be defined as atmospheric and minimalist. My aim is to capture the feeling of the moment and the space, with sparse detail and frugal brush work. My portable studio is simple and compact, fitting in a laptop bag, this keeps the format of my paintings reduced to a manageable 9” x 11”; I work on three paintings at a time, moving the brush rapidly and spontaneously, the end result being a meditation in water and color.
