Stare Down or Steer Clear

Artist: Tim Oliver, United States
Artist Statement: This is a small color study for a larger watercolor piece that is in progress. Pencil and watercolor (Daniel Smith) in Stillman & Birn Beta Series sketchbook. This sketch was laid out lightly and loosely from observation and photography in HB pencil. It was then painted in watercolor using successive glazes. I use this method regularly as I explore composition, values and color. Most of my final watercolor paintings, both plein air and studio, begin with studies such as this. Still debating the title of the final piece…right now it’s between “Stare Down” and “Steer Clear”….

MEDIA: Pencil and watercolor
SURFACE: Beta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – White – Cold Press Finish
