Watercolor has been one of my favorite mediums for over 50 years, and continues to provide unique opportunities and challenges, as well as an invitation to explore new techniques. It also is extremely accessible, as I maintain a covered palette that is always ready to use, allowing me the ability to paint for any length of time without a lot of prep, clean-up, or wasted paint. I love the way the medium gives you the ability to dissolve or delineate forms, its transparency, and the serendipitous way the wet colors move. Many of my watercolors are like colored drawings, much easier to control the line with fast- drying transparent watercolor than with a heavier medium such as oil. I’ve often heard watercolor is a difficult medium because you only get one chance with a painting, but I’ve never believed that, though you do have to be careful not to overwork it. The watercolor medium process is beautiful, fun, and suggestive of endless possibilities. I also love the way transparent colors seem to glow from the way light shines through from the paper itself.
