Watercolors - Bryn Craig
A selection of beautiful watercolor paintings by Bryn Craig.
"You wouldn't know by looking through his serene and seemingly effortless portfolio, but Bryn Craig has had his issues with watercolors. The renowned oil painter even went on record in American Artist saying that he didn't like the medium. Watercolors are more unforgiving than oils, he says, making it hard to correct mistakes. They require the artist to be more thoughtful, to be more in the moment.
Eventually Craig decided those were just the kind of challenges he wanted, and for the next 15 years he toted his easel to nine U.S. states and ten foreign countries, not only making peace with watercolors but finding new expression for his artist instincts. 'It's fresher and looser,' says Craig. 'It's something I can't replicate in the studio. I have to be on site." - Casey McCabe
