Downeast Watercolors features colorful, realistic paintings of coastal Maine by Beth Whitney

I grew up along the coast of Maine and have been an artist for as long as I can remember. Whether hiking in Acadia National Park, collecting sea glass on Deer Isle, searching for moose in Baxter State Park, rock-hopping and surf-watching on Schoodic Point, exploring the latest blooms at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, or taking a day sail from Camden, I have always been enchanted by the natural beauty of my home state.

Over the past 20 years, my watercolors have been exhibited through several galleries, numerous juried outdoor art shows, and solo exhibitions. Today, my paintings are available exclusively through the web, accessible to everyone to view and purchase regardless of where they live. My website, https://DowneastWatercolors.com, features original paintings and my archive, which includes a sampling of pieces in private collections throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Middle East.

Please feel free to get in touch via convo here on Etsy or email me at beth [!at] downeastwatercolors.com.

Frequently asked questions
What is a giclee print?

Giclee prints use high-resolution digital scans and special pigment-based inks to create incredibly detailed reproductions. My paper is 100% cotton rag, which really shows off the colors. The colors are crisp, vibrant, and perfectly mirror those of the original paintings. Because I do my own printing, I'm able to ensure the accuracy of each reproduction.

Framing & Displaying

I use standard sized mats, so you can either buy the frame off the shelf or have your local framer offer expert advice and a vast selection of styles and colors. I recommend using UV glass or plexi for original watercolors, which will help protect your art from the sun's damaging light. I'm glad to give you ideas on sourcing glass and frames.

For prints, it's a matter of buying a frame, washing the glass, and slipping into the frame. No special glazing needed.

Whether you use UV glass or not, art should be displayed away from direct or very bright light to avoid fading.
