Master of Watercolor | Steve Hanks (American)

Steve Hanks | Master of Watercolor

Steve Hanks is recognized as one of the best watercolor artists working today. The detail, color and realism of Steve hanks’ paintings are unheard of in this difficult medium.

A softly worn patterned quilt, the play of light on the thin veil of surf on sand, or the delicate expression of a child–Steve hanks captures these patterns of life better than anyone. Steve Hanks (1949-2015), the master of watercolor and figures passed away in Albuquerque, new mexico on April 22 after a battle with cancer.

“Art comes from a deep inner sense of direction.
It starts with a re-evaluation of your own life, from a search for the source of the impulses and mystery of it all. I think of myself as an emotional realist. Emotion is what I want to portray. Realism is just my way of doing it” – Steve Hanks
