Elaborate Watercolor Paintings by Daniel Merriam
Maine artist Daniel Merriam reveals his New England roots in these fairy tale watercolor paintings. Victorian architecture and characters are the protagonists of these intricate renderings, whose symmetry and detail are appreciable when considering the unforgiving nature of watercolors.
Daniel successfully transcends the spontaneous nature of his medium to produce an uncommon level of richness and opulence that reflects the colonial landscapes of his childhood, with a decidedly surreal and vibrant twist. Decadent castles, lush landscapes and impossibly precarious, yet ornate buildings are signature hallmarks of his work, along with smartly dressed people and animals to add another layer of fantasy to these outstanding paintings.
