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.

Still lifes

A collection of ordinary objects, randomly discovered, becomes a rich story; things we use in our everyday lives, usually taken for granted or not readily acknowledged become a deep composition of time and activity. Strong sunlight and shadow bring each object to the stage.
