David Coffin is another artist who came into my life via the internet -- I'm constantly amazed at how that has expanded our horizons. If you dig a bit into his past, you discover a man of rather diverse and unusual talents. He was an excellent traditional watercolorist back in the 1970s, then became fascinated with tailoring clothing and proceeded to develop instructional books on that subject and worked as an editor and writer at Threads Magazine for many years.
In his recent watercolors, David has taken exploration of materials to quite astonishing levels -- his work is incredibly rich in color, full of fantastic flowing shapes, and really quite mysterious.
Please visit Brush-Paper-Water to see more of his work. And when you link to his blog, be sure to take time to visit his daily painting blog, Eyes and Skies, for some wonderful studies utilizing the unique properties of watercolor.
