Watercolor Landscapes by Direk Kingnok | Luscious, Loose Watercolor

Direk Kingnok is moved to paint by the beauty that surrounds him, and he finds it everywhere. Fresh off a trip to Turkey for the International Watercolor Society’s International Watercolor Biennial, the Khon Kaen, Thailand, artist is flooded with inspiration. Yet, while he could choose to paint any exotic or extravagant view from his recent travels, the scenes he finds most intriguing for his watercolor paintings are the places and people he encounters every day—Bangkok at sunset, fishermen in Vietnam, rush hour traffic, a street market bursting at the seams. “Common people in common places,” he says, are the fuel to his creative passion.

Enjoy this gallery of Kingnok’s watercolor landscapes, and read more about the artist and his loose watercolors—plus a watercolor tutorial—in the October 2014 issue of Watercolor Artist, available now in the North Light shop and on newsstands August 19.
