Stewart White is an amazing watercolor artist. I love watercolors. I always have. You don’t see them as often as oils, probably because of the time spent framing (cutting a mat, cutting glass, etc.) – Stewart’s watercolor paintings are mesmerizing. Do you know how long I could look at this painting and the number of stories I could come up with? Look at how many activities are going on. The people are fabulous, the landscape and sky is amazing. There is LIFE to this painting. It’s got so much life to it that it’s hard to look away.
Brilliant… To me, this is stunning!
