Hello! My name is Ryan Drew. I am just beginning to find self-expression as a watercolor artist. For ten years, I have put all my creative resources into the field of architecture, but for the past few years I have been experimenting as a water color artist. I began with the development of simple watercolor paintings, and was able to quickly transition to more advanced techniques, including wet-in-wet, masking, salt, blooms, and backruns. I’m finding the change exhilarating and the avenues boundless. As a beginning watercolor artist, I’m still exploring style, genre, and medium; water media has my attention for now. I primarily focus on nature scenes because I want to use my artistic ability to share the beauty of the Northwest United States with the world. I love the drama of light and shadow, and the energy and immediacy that watercolor painting provides. My portfolio is small but growing steadily as I continue to explore my environment and my further develop my watercolor techniques.
