Modern Watercolor Masters at Surovek Gallery

Scott Kelley, Walton Ford and Stephen Scott Young are three of the finest watercolorists in America.

Even with the unpredictable and, often, unforgiving medium, each has his own style, his own focus and each has created masterful works that we are pleased to offer in our gallery.

Scott Kelley

Scott Kelley reading his book I Am Birch to his son, Abbott, 2018.

Scott Kelley has been spending his time at his home in Maine, creating a new series of watercolor paintings. His skillful technique, combined with his ability to infuse his works with a sense of empathy and sensitivity, has made him one of our favorite artists.
