complexity & simplicity
I often find that the simpler my subjects are, the more fun I have painting them. They also inevitably end up being some of my best work. I think maybe its because simple subjects resonate better with the inherent simplicity of the watercolor medium. I really enjoy allowing large, intermingling washes to do what they want, to surprise me with their lack of rhyme or reason. I call it the art within watercolor. I will describe my creative thoughts and process in the creation of my painting " Confluence" shown below. ( Confluence suggests the joining of two rivers. Here, the mighty Susquehanna River is joined by a beautiful, trout filled Maryland tributary called "Deer Creek"

One of my favorites. Simple composition of a great setting, and the beauty and strength of watercolor shines in this painting.
