While it is one of the most difficult mediums, I have always loved the transparency and glow of Watercolor. I love capturing the beauty of seascapes and landscapes, capturing the atmosphere through light and shadows, and particularly the movement in the sky. The play between light and shadow on the beach are intriguing to put on paper. Watercolor allows me the freedom to be as realistic as possible, or, be more abstract and let the viewer decide.
