ARTIST’S STATEMENT

This painting is but one of a few that I’ve done over the years that was NOT done on site!  It was done early-on while I was taking one of my watercolor classes.  It’s an imaginary scene!  I don’t discourage people from doing paintings from their imagination.  You never know how good they will turn out to be!  But you still have to go through the same steps required for an on-site painting.

Douglas Stenhouse also wrote a book about watercolor painting.

“I decided to write about how I paint, not only to share my observations with others, but also, frankly, to do some self- examination. I wish I had done this earlier in my life! But then, how was I to know I’d benefit from doing so, certainly at a time when I had no aspirations of becoming a professional artist.”
