My approach to watercolor involves deliberate and patient layering, executed with strokes that range from very active to finely controlled. Multiple applications of transparent watercolor serve to convey light-filled and darkly accented scenes of nature as captured drama. The paints I use range from Winsor & Newton to Daniel Smith watercolors; the surfaces are almost all Arches cold-pressed paper, typically 300 lb. or 140 lb. I find that those papers stand up very well to the repeated wettings of paint laid layer upon layer upon them.
