Bob first pursued an education in architecture because of his interest in drawing. Architecture was a perfect fit that enabled him to develop and utilize this skill, and for almost 30 years of practice as an architect, drawing was his constant companion and main tool in his toolbox. Fittingly, he retired from architecture at the turning point in time when computer-aided-drafting (CAD) began to eliminate the need for drawing by hand. However, Bob continued to draw, only now free to explore his own, personal visions.
To compliment his interest in drawing, he decided to venture into the world of watercolor painting. Over the years he has mastered many of the intricacies of this difficult media by observation and by practice, developing his own methodology for watermedia painting. Although he has never participated in a workshop or art course, the challenge of the “trial and error” process continues to be his primary motivator as an artist. The quality of his work has earned him “Signature Member” status in America’s two most prestigious watercolor societies, the American Watercolor Society (AWS) in New York and the National Watercolor Society (NWS) in California.
Subject matters of Bob’s paintings vary from landscapes and maritime objects, to buildings and even figure studies, but certain characteristics are present in all of his work. The most obvious is balanced and strong composition, precise and refined delineation of the painting subject, and high attention to detail. His paintings are always developed to have a compelling image from a distance but also to be visually interesting and refined on close inspection.
