An example of fine art by Steven A. Taylor

As a Boise, Idaho native my oil and watercolor paintings are a culmination of classes and observations. I discovered this interest and drawing talent in myself in Junior High School. I was drawn to the light, shadow and mood of 'Early Sunday Morning', a print of Edward Hopper's painting which hung in my English Composition class. I've been a student of art since.
I've studied under two Northwest masters, Venture Coy and Roland Giampaoli for oil and watercolor instruction respectively. Both of these mediums have allowed me to capture beauty in cityscapes and landscapes on the east and west coasts through the transparency and fluidity of watercolor, and the buttery richness of oils. From the get go, I've striven to develop a  style based upon realism, look for the art in everything  and am thrilled with the interactions and relationships with people developed in plein air and studio settings. I hope these pictures help you forget about life for awhile. It worked for me!
