Emotional realism by Steve Hanks
Born in San Diego in 1949, American artist Steve Hanks is one of the best watercolor artists working today. The detail, color and realism of Steve Hanks’ paintings are unheard of in this difficult medium. In particular, 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. And Hanks himself calls his style ‘emotional realism’. “Sunlight has become one of my favorite subjects. I’m fascinated by how it filters through things, how it floods a whole room with color. Often my paintings are really more about sunlight than anything else.”
