Watercolor paintings and art prints

Watercolors by Pat Choffrut was opened on Etsy in 2012. As a professional watercolor artist, I decided to join Etsy because I wanted to share my art with an audience of art lovers/art shoppers who are looking for unique paintings to enhance your homes and business environments as well as special gifts to offer your friends and family.

My original paintings and art prints cover a wide range of subjects, from portraits and figure paintings to seascapes, landscapes, still life, florals, and even food. My style can be categorized as impressionistic, as I like to paint feelings more than detail.

My watercolors are painted on Arches French watercolor paper. Arches is a superior paper for painting watercolors, as any artist will tell you. I use transparent pigments, which allow for a glow to shine through the paper. I love transparent paint. The originals are painted in different sizes, some large, some smaller. Many of them are entered in local and national exhibitions, where they have won prizes. The prints are made at a top-rated professional printing shop on archival watercolor paper, which makes them look exactly like the originals. I am very particular about the quality of my prints—you are guaranteed an excellent reproduction. Prints can be ordered in different sizes, no problem, even larger than the originals, just let me know what you want. Originals and prints are reasonably priced.

If you have a photo you would like made into a painting—a portrait of your children or grandchildren, a scene from a favorite vacation, your boat, a bouquet of flowers, etc., I will be happy to do a commission just for you. I do a lot of them, require no down payments or obligation to buy. Thanks for stopping; hope you enjoy your visit here.
