E.B. Lewis-Watercolorist Extraordinaire
E.B. Lewis, Watercolorist Extraordinaire
I recently discovered the wonderful watercolor artist E.B. Lewis. Lewis first came to my attention through the book "Coming On Home Soon" by Jacquelin Woodson, which Lewis illustrated.
While most of the illustrations I have seen by him thus far are from children's books, the artwork contained therein are hardly childlike or simple as some artists might be tempted to display when illustrating such a work. As an artist myself, Mr. Lewis has lit a fire under me which I'm sure in the days, weeks and months to come will cause me to further explore the very challenging medium of expression that watercolors is.
For those of you unfamiliar with his work, I would suggest you google his name and see if you can catch a glimpse of some of the artwork he has on display online. His work is simply amazing.
