Painting of the Day, January 15, 2012

By Donna Poulton

“My watercolor process involves painting hundreds of abstract shapes, all with hard edges, 
within a representational framework. I paint layer over layer, floating pure color into clear washes, letting the colors blend visually on the paper. I then outline, with India ink, every shape I've just painted. This unifies 
the painting, makes it clean, and creates the effect of looking upon the scene in high-definition, 
as if you could see everything perfectly.” — Jonathan Frank

Frank’s painting titled From the Beginning is in the newly released book, Art Journey America Landscapes: 89 Painters
