Hyperrealism in Watercolor | Rance Jones Gallery

One thing is certain about Rance Jones: The award-winning artist knows how to tell a story in his watercolor painting. Whether it’s a series of works depicting scenes from an Irish fishing village or vignettes of small-town Mexico, there’s a tale being told that delves beyond the surface, suggested in glances and gestures. Even in the manner Jones talks about his work, there’s a yarn attached. “I paint what’s emotionally powerful to me,” he says.

View a few of his provocative pieces below, and learn how he achieves this hyperrealism in his watercolor painting in the June 2015 issue of Watercolor Artist, available now in print or as an instant download at northlightshop.com, and on newsstands April 21.
