The watercolor urban landscapes of John DuVal

I’m a Jersey City born watercolor artist, and I strive to capture the light and color of urban landscapes to create a fresh, yet familiar feel for the viewer. I paint outside as often as I can, which helps me keep my brush work spontaneous and energetic. I tend to work quickly so that I don’t focus on superficiality and I’m able to portray the “feel” of a place. For me, a painting is an illusion that should entice the viewer and evoke feeling.~John DuVal
