Trish Poupard I'm a photo-realist watercolor artist. I work in transparent watercolor only, using photos I've taken myself. I am inspired by images I would like to see improved by the watercolor medium. Because I consider myself a purist, I utilize only transparent watercolor on 100% cotton paper and never use white paint or non-transparent techniques. My inspiration comes from photos I’ve taken of the real world as I experience it. I put my heart and soul into every painting I accomplish as I endeavor to create realistic beauty one painting at a time. My current work can be found in private collections as well as national and international exhibitions.
