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.

Urban Landscapes / New Work 2012-2014

Walls, back alleys, rusting and eroding materials all serve as a palette for me. These forgotten, often overlooked parts of our urban environment can offer us rich compositions from ordinary places.
