Steve HANKS ~ Cats ✿

Steve Hanks (1949-2015) is recognized as one of the best watercolor american 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.

Hanks calls his style ‘emotional realism’. He often leaves the faces of his figures obscured or turned away, not only to leave the face to the imagination of the viewer but also to allow the entire figure to express the emotion. Backlighting is also a signature element of his style.
