Breath Taking Women Paintings

Sunday, 5 September 2010

Steve Hanks is recognized as one of the best watercolor artists
working today. The detail, color and realism of Steve Hanks' paintings
are unheard of in this difficult medium. A softly worn patterned quilt,
the play of light on the thin veil of surf on sand, or the delicate
expression of a child—-Steve Hanks captures these patterns of life
better than anyone.

Steve Hanks was born into a military family in San Diego in 1949. His
father was a highly decorated WWII Navy flyer. Hanks grew up playing
tennis and surfing along the beaches of Southern California. “The ocean
made a strong and lasting impression on me. It was good for the soul to
be out in the water—surfing, swimming, or simply getting in touch with
its mysterious power.”
