Wonderful Watercolor Artists and Resources Online

Today I come across a wonderful watercolor artist: Joseph Alleman (http://www.josephalleman.com). Born in 1975, he is already and AWS. And his watercolor is like nothing I have seen before. It is so clear and full of design elements. The clear gradation of sky reminds me of the thin, chilly morning air of Utah. This is a genius. At this young age, he already has his own style, a unique voice in the world of watercolor. If I have to say, the subtle usage of non-saturated color reminds me of Wyeth.

And I am luck to come across two watercolor artist's blog: Roland Lee (http://travelsketchbook.blogspot.com/) and Nita Leland (http://nitaleland.blogspot.com/). Both are full of information, resource, wonderful drawings and paintings, photographs and even demonstrations! I am truly grateful that these wonderful artists are kind enough to share their art and experience with the new comers to the art world...

Also, I found a wonderful portrait artist, Butch Krieger, who wrote a ton of articles to the artist's magazine, all of which are availble on his website: http://www.butchkrieger.com/links.htm

After a day of browsing and not working, I couldn't feel more content and energitic. Will try to paint a small watercolor tonight.
