William T. Tuthill Biography

I’m consumed by the perfect watercolor. Failure is a nightmare of every artist with ambition and with students of watercolor in particular because you can’t go back and make changes the way you can with oil. For every successful painting there are dozens never seen. I like to paint in the horizontal and vertical that architecture creates. We live in a world of horizontals and verticals, the horizontal of nature and the vertical of man. This is what I’m comfortable painting. I like the control and precision of the architecture of a city or a bridge, a train or a car. So I paint in a tight, controlled style that reveals their structure. I push the colors that are already in the environment to achieve an unexpected drama that emerges from an intense realism.
