Let Freedom Ring

watercolor on board, 24” x 36”

Large watercolors are challenging – the medium is hard to control, and it is difficult to make corrections once the paint has been laid down. I made at least a half dozen small studies of this church before I was confident enough to begin this large work.

One of the influences for this painting was the work of Western watercolorist William Matthews. This artist keeps his shapes simple, his colors intense – a fairly unusual technique for a watercolorist, and an approach I admire greatly. He draws on many of the same influences Id o, including American artist Edward Hopper and Asian art.

I was rewarded for my efforts by having this watercolor accepted into a show at the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville.
