Stephen Rothwell
I work as a representational artist  in a loose style that I
refer to as “impressionistic realism”.  The subject matter
I paint varies greatly and includes landscapes, seascapes,
harbour scenes, urban streetscapes, and architectural
renderings such as Victorian houses.  Regardless of the
subject, I try to evoke an emotional response in the
viewer.  I believe that watercolour with its subtle colour,
its value gradations and unexpected juxtapositions of
colour is the perfect medium for this.
My mission is to capture the essence of the subject,
rather than the literal, exact translation.  When
people viewing my work express  “I want to be
there” or the find that my paintings seem to  tell
their own unique story, then I know I have achieved
my objective.
