Watercolor Updates - Andy Evansen

Watercolor Update

Andy Evansen

   We are focusing on watercolor over the next few weeks and have asked some of those wonderful watercolor artists that we've previously interviewed to update us with a few of their newer images. Andy Evansen wrote us after his week-long workshop in Padua, Italy and sent along these new images. (You can see our earlier interview with Andy here:  Voice of Experience - Andy Evansen.)

   "During the first few days of my trip to Padula, southern Italy was experiencing the Saharan Dust phenomenon. The jet lag was disorienting enough, but the thick air lent a dream-like quality to my first day wandering about.  It made for low visibility during the day, but spectacular sunsets in the evening."

   "About a year ago a friend recommended the book The Old Ways, by Robert McFarlane to me, and I was instantly taken by his descriptions of ancient roads and paths and "the subtle ways in which we are shaped by the landscapes through which we move."
   "He quotes the Thomas Clark poem 'In Praise of Walking''always, everywhere, people have walked, bringing the earth with paths visible and invisible, symmetrical or meandering'. I loved that, and the view above Padula, shrouded in haze, reminded me of that wonderful book, and how this part of the world has been carved for thousands of years by people. The sight of a man with donkey and dog in tow, taking it all in, was perfect in my mind."
