140# Coldpress Paper
This original was created for a new book by photographer, Johnny Georgiou called #MASC. The book is a beautiful collection of photos expressing masculinity on many levels. I was asked by Johnny to create 8 paintings from his photos. The challenge was to express not just copying the photos but to express how I saw masculinity.
For me, the unpredictability and uncontrollable nature of watercolor make it the most exciting and expressive medium of all. The opportunity to meander somewhere between mastery and complete lack of control during the course of a painting make it one of the most engaging mediums. This, plus the fact that it is quick, clean and portable, got me in 18 years ago and my enthusiasm has been growing ever since.
