“Nothing excites me more than looking forward to being in a new place, of driving down a back road with no particular goal in mind, or getting on a plane with my carry-on bag, travel palette, sketchbooks and pens.”
Favored for its boldness, directness, and vibrancy, watercolor has been long regarded as a quintessential American medium. Immersed in a tradition of American artists who have embraced watercolor to document their travels, celebrated local artist Rosamond Parrish presents a compelling portrait of her travels at home and abroad. With washes of transparent color, Parrish captures light and atmosphere, achieving luminous effects that suggest immediacy and freshness. From the Grand Canal in Venice to the picturesque streets of St. Augustine, Parrish’s brilliantly colored paintings create an evocative journal of the places she has visited and her experiences along the way.
