Iain Stewart, AWS / NWS
A gifted plein air watercolorist, Iain Stewart wrote, “I often use remembered atmospheric and lighting conditions in my work and would say that I paint from life and memory simultaneously. My watercolors are not only a translation of what I see but more importantly, an expression of how I choose to view the world.” His fabulous paintings are probably familiar to you as he has been featured in numerous magazines, books and DVDs, is a signature member of both AWS and NWS, and he has won numerous awards in international competitions.
From his studio in Opelika, Alabama, he also works as an architectural illustrator, and teaches watercolor and design drawing at nearby Auburn University. More on Iain at iainstew.fineartstudioonline.com and at Iain Stewart Watercolors on Facebook.
