"There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks.  Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story." ~Linda Hogan

Greg's Watercolor Paintings

watercolor painting

 

Below is a digital collection of my watercolor paintings.  Most of the paintings are made with watercolor dyes.  The dyes are powder-based and transform into beautiful, brilliant colors the instant they are mixed with water.  The dyes are traditionally used in the garment industry and are great for tie-dying and batiking.  Around 1992 I was introduced to these dyes and first used them to make tie-dye clothing and tapestries.  After I used them for several years, I had a eureka moment and thought to try to paint with them.  First, I painted on clothing and tapestries.  At times I added thickeners to create acrylic-like textures and explored various techniques.  Since 1992 I have used them on natural fabrics, fine art paper, tissue paper, watercolor paper, unprimed and primed canvases.  

Currently, I am drawing with these dyes and have been using fountain pens instead of brushes.  I love the brush, but the pens offer unique possibilities, including extra-sharp lines and graphic forms.  I look forward to completing my first few fountain pen drawings and sharing them.  

Watercolor brushes are used in most all of the paintings below. Some paintings also used stiff bristled brushes for the sake of dropping powder dyes onto the surface of the paper or canvas.  The paint used for almost all of the paintings below is the powder dyes mentioned above.  However, one or two use watercolor-tray paints and/or watercolor crayons.
