“When I sit down to create a watercolor painting I focus on for things to help me succeed in my goal of transcending the medium. I try to focus on composition, color, lighting and subject matter. Because of this when people walk into my studio they frequently look at my work and say “That’s a Watercolor Painting?” I have spent as much as two years on one watercolor. There are many techniques for how to paint watercolors. There’s Wet on Wet, Dry Brush, Diluting just to name a few. Much like the late Andrew Wyeth, one of my greatest influences who I had the honor to meet, I try to mix techniques to create the most realism possible. Wet on Wet becomes great for water, snow and sky while Dry Brush will bring to life a pot or a sidewalk. I’ve always loved Wyeth’s ability to create watercolor paintings that ran the full spectrum from washy sketches to intense masterpieces due to his combination of techniques (specializing in Dry Brush). I also love the work of Albrecht Durer who used the watercolors as an extension of the original drawing. These can best be seen in his paintings A Young Hare“,  A Crab and “The Tuft of Grass“. Each one of my Watercolor Paintings starts as a drawing and like Durer I make the watercolor become an extension of that drawing” ~ Nick
