Meet the emerging artists who have caught the attention of today’s top instructors and exhibition jurors throughout the year. The artists chosen as our 2016 “Ones to Watch” obviously treasure their work, and the various ways in which they channel that passion are what make this annual feature so celebratory.
In the December 2016 issue of Watercolor Artist, these artists share their thoughts about the impact for which they strive, the power of a single color, the emotional tax of being committed to a painting (for better or worse), embracing their weakness and—maybe most essentially—having a Plan B. Order your copy of the issue here, or find it on newsstands beginning October 18.
Below we present some of their paintings that didn’t make it into the printed edition of the magazine. Enjoy!
Congratulations to the 2016 Ones to Watch!
