Featured Local Artist: Leigh Murphy
Jacksonville watercolorist Leigh Murphy’s paintings are nationally recognized and collected both corporately and privately.”The medium of watercolor is exhilarating in its ability to produce rich brilliant color, its capacity for incredibly fine detail, and varied textures. I want to convey to the viewer the same sense of sublime meditative beauty that I feel when I am creating this work. I enjoy the challenge of depicting the difficult shapes, light effects, and textures that occur in my work. They are hard to render convincingly but the results are always rewarding. My favorite paintings are also my most recent ones, I find that I have to complete another one to be able to let the last one go.”
