Capturing “Light” in Watercolor

This is a series of paintings Bob completed recently in which he made an attempt to paint light in transparent watercolor.  It’s one of the most challenging and elusive parts of watercolor painting and the reason he loves it!  It’s the very essence of watercolor!  “Cathedral interiors are the most fun to paint because they were designed to capture light through clerestory windows and stained glass – both  intended to create an ethereal illusion suggesting the light coming from heaven.”   Please also refer to:  Capturing Light in Watercolor by Marilyn Simande
