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

Maine is one of the most beautiful states with the most varied scenery anywhere. I've spent most of my life hiking in Acadia National Park, collecting sea glass on Deer Isle, looking for the elusive moose in Baxter State Park, watching the crashing surf at Giant Stairs on Bailey Island, taking day sails from Camden, enjoying the latest flowers at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, and much more. I'm always looking for new places and subjects to explore and share with you through my watercolors.

I've been painting professionally for more than 20 years, and my original watercolors are enjoyed by collectors 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. I don't accept commissions, but I do welcome suggestions of locations you'd like to see me paint next.

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 on original paintings and mini/small prints. This makes it easy to purchase a frame off the shelf. If you'd like to get creative, I recommend heading to your local framer for expert advice and a vast selection of styles and colors. I recommend using UV glazing for original watercolors, which will help protect your art from the sun's damaging light.

For prints, it's a matter of buying a frame, washing the glass, and slipping into the frame. Mats do look a little more polished, especially if you're gifting the piece of art.

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