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 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.
Scott has a great appreciation for the flora and fauna of Florida, which he has been visiting and documenting for years.
Walton Ford grew up in the suburb of Larchmont, New York and found inspiration in the dioramas he saw when he visited the Museum of Natural History.
Ford’s work examines the relationship between humans and animals in the wild. The creatures in the wilderness, he believes, “would rather be left alone.”
Ford’s works are in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian, the Whitney Museum and other notable museums.
Stephen Scott Young
Stephen Scott Young has earned the reputation of being one of America’s most talented contemporary watercolorists.
Young’s quiet, powerful style brings a sense of intimacy to his subjects…often the children of the Bahamas, where he has a studio in addition to the studio at his home in Sarasota, Florida.
