Steve Hanks is one of the best watercolor artists working today. No matter that this technique of painting is very complicated, his images are incredibly realistic. Enjoy.

    First: I’m a big fan of Steve Hanks-Thanks for the post! Question: you stated that the paintings Aquarelle-Are you using the term “aquarelle” as a a reference to the general watercolor medium or to a specific brand of watercolor?
    (I “dabble” in watercolors)
    Thanks!

    Hey, I know this guy! He used to show in a gallery in ALbuquerque I helped set up and run. He’s always been one of my favorites. haven’t seen him in 40 years. It’s weird seeing him here, a major artist now. Very cool. Thanks for the post

    Wow Mickey that’s awesome!! This guy’s paintings are incredible! They look real! My goodness, anything really is possible. One brought a tear to my eye, a painting has never done that for me before. God bless the artist.

    Copying photographs does not make an artist. They are nothing more than a form of paint by numbers.

    Chuck Close is far more talented, if you like this sort of thing.

    Whoa zipp, is that not a huge assumption? Does anything on this page state that the techniques used to create these pictures involve photography?

    I’m not saying he didn’t use photos, but come on – you should at least have something to substantiate a negative (and extremely derisory) assertion such as branding an artists work as “…nothing more than a form of paint by numbers”. Could we please see some of your work?

    …and while I’m at it, qwibbler, I also don’t think it’s fair to use the word “kitsch”. If this sort of thing doesn’t appeal to you because you believe that your taste is more discriminating then that’s your opinion, but is there really any need to insult it?

    I think some of these pieces are beautiful, and I enjoy picking out the details of the flowing material, wind-blown hair, dappled light, etc. regardless of how they were created.
