Doug Shoemaker Watercolors

"Through the medium of transparent watercolor, my work explores everyday and mundane objects and places in the built and natural environment, tightly editing the composition to evoke the power and clarity of simplicity. Walls, shadows, edges, buildings, landscape and flat surfaces together with strong sunlight all interest me to create meaningful images where the ordinary becomes complex, poetic and memorable.

Aquatints and Etchings

Various hand printed aquatints and etchings; some are black and white, some are hand colored. Limited, signed and numbered in small editions, usually 1-10. Presidio Bench was printed at Trillium Press in San Francisco. I produced the original plates; the press did the actual printing under my supervision.
