"Pink Lilly" by Matt Moberly

"Pink Lilly" by Matt Moberly.

It’s a wonderful thing, being an artist, living in Alaska. There is much inspiration to be drawn from our seasons, the landscape, mountains, rivers, the people, and my favorite subject, the birch.

The local color is all around us. What I truly enjoy is interpreting those scenes via watercolor. The pinks, reds, blues, purples and ochres in snow, that are so well hidden unless you stop to really see them. The same can be said for our clouds, with colorful grays, intermixed with blues in the sky. My inspiration comes from all of this, my mind’s eye seeing the colors that will eventually make up a finished painting.”
