“Painting very directly, I place my watercolors on the paper or canvas with very little mixing on the palette. I use lots of varied color, in my blacks to keep them from going flat, in my whites to keep them glowing, and even in my skin tones to keep them interesting. Emotion plays an important part in every successful painting, so I choose only subjects that call to me and that in turn gives my work energy and excitement.”
