Leslie Wilson Watercolors
I am a watercolor artist offering original watercolor paintings and commissions, including landscapes, still life and figures in an impressionistic style. I have focused on watercolor painting for more than 20 years, capturing the moment in vibrant light and color, both en plein air and in the studio. I love transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary and reminding people of the places they have been, the people they have met, and the truly remarkable light and color in our world.
