Bob Caffrey’s Watercolor Bio
Being a registered architect has given me a lot of practice over the years with drawing and colors.
The best prize for painting I ever got was first prize from the Maryland Federation of Art for a watercolor of my Volkswagen.
My paintings can be found in several collections, including the Dries Collection in Milwaukee.
Some of the hings I like to paint include outdoor still-lifes (e.g. trunks of trees, curved walks, rocks, weeds. etc.) I like to make ugly or ordinary things look good (e.g. storm aftermaths, traffic jams, trash collection, etc.). And then there’s “negative space.” That’s a fancy expression for light against dark. Edges of forests look good using negative space.
