I’m a retired Landscape Architect with a passion for watercolor painting. Since 1981, while working full time, I started painting in watercolor after attending an adult watercolor class offered by the Kettle Moraine Technical Institute. I’ve enjoyed painting as a hobby ever since. In 2007 I retired and decided to pursue this passion with a dedicated effort to become a professional painter in watercolor.  I built a studio adjacent to our home and have been painting on a consistent basis to this date. I am basically self- taught in watercolor. My teachers are many books, VCR’s , and DVD’s of some of the best watercolorists that I admire. My paintings are mainly landscapes, focusing on the arrangement of farm buildings and rural scenes. However, I am also interested in other urban architectural scenes, people, and abstracts. The more I paint the more painterly and abstract I want to become. I consider my style at this time to be an abstract realist. I enjoy pushing color, distorting shapes, and employing strong contrast. My favorite quote is from Pablo Picasso; “Nature and Art are two different things. Through art we express our conceptions of what nature is not”. Today, I like to think that reality or realism and art are two different things. Through art we express our interpretations or conceptions of what reality is not. That is why pushing my interpretations of a natural or realistic scene in a more abstract direction is so interesting and I am enjoying the journey.
 
I am a member of the Wisconsin Watercolor Society, past member of the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, past member of the Museum of Wisconsin Art, past member of the Cedarburg Artists Guild. You can view some of my paintings on my web site at www.everettwpowell.com.
