Steve Hanks is a Water Colour Artist and his ability to render the most realistic images in this difficult medium is breath taking to say the least.
The detail of his paintings, the light, texture, tone, his ability to capture intimate detail and his interaction with the viewer make his work impossible to just glance at. One is compelled to look at each image again and again, you are drawn in by the textures, light, the person in the moment and the sheer mastery of the medium.
A small selection of his large body of work…………..
All of these paintings have titles but, apologies Steve, I feel they some how detract from the wonderfully deceptive simplicity of the works, so I have not posted them.
All of Steve’s work with their titles can be viewed on Artifacts Gallery.
I have not been able to find a personal website for him.
