Zach’s incredible watercolor paintings reflect his fascination with light and color.
My style has much to do with my obsession with light and color. Everything I create reflects my fascination with light (in a physical, symbolic and spiritual sense). I believe that color is a mechanism for expressing the intensity of one’s internal light/ connection to light. By using more vibrant colors and deeper contrasts, I am able to create a sense of drama and express something metaphysical.
I love anything that involves culture, mythology, or everyday living.
I specialize in watercolor, Prismacolor, and oil painting.
I have started to use raw umber in my under-paintings as a way to allow internal warm tones to show through the proceeding glaze layers.
I can’t say I resemble them directly, but I love John Singer Sargent, Caravaggio, Leonardo da Vinci, the Post-Raphaelites, and Vermeer.
