Stewart White is a watercolorist from Baltimore, Maryland. He is one of the rare plein air painters using the medium of watercolor. His background in architectural illustration adds to his skill set and his paintings reflect his knowledge of good design. Stewartâ€™s paintings have the pleasing combination of good structure with a painterly style. He is a transparent watercolorist Â in the purest tradition of watercolor painters. Where as watercolor expresses its nature as fluidÂ oil paint is stiff and seems to want to be expressed in a thick and buttery way.
