Brent Clowater uses soft washes, saturated colours and hard edges to turn his drawings from real life into moody and luminous watercolour paintings.
“Growing up I sketched a lot from my environment. Eventually it became habit for me to keep a sort of visual journal. I found that I could impress a mood into a gestural drawing to create an image that felt alive and said more than a photo. It was this impressionistic approach to art making that led me to watercolour painting. I love the immediacy of the medium and that it allows for works that are fresh and vibrant with a depth in their saturation and tonality. “
