Kevin’s inspiration comes from what he knows and enjoys, the rural Ohio landscape. After experimenting with all types of paints from oils to acrylics, Kevin decided that watercolor would be his medium of choice. He uses a combination of dry brush, wet on wet, and various other techniques. He refers to his paintings as “images in watercolor that achieve realistic, sharp detail”.
Kevin begins a painting by carefully selecting a subject matter that evokes a feeling or has some special meaning to him. After carefully studying the subject he considers all the elements needed for a successful painting. Composition, color and technique along with years of practice, is the formula for all his paintings. His work has won many awards and can be found in corporate and private collections.I’ve chosen art as a career, but found a lifestyle.“
Thank you for taking a minute to look at my work. The following paintings reflect years of hard work and practice. Please feel free to submit a comment on my contact page.
– All my best, Kevin
