Artist of the moment…. Watercolor master Ray Hendershot



I love this artist for many reasons. He is great at highly detailed watercolors. In a way he reminds me of the late Andy Wyeth. This artist has been painting for more than 60 years and is a high volume seller. He not only sells originals  but you can also find his wonderful barns and farm scenes for sale at or

He mainly paints the things that show wear and tear in the Pennsylvania countryside.

For those of you who live in the west or northwest as I have during winter, his grey cool days are just great.  When I look at one of these scenes its as if I can smell grandpa just put some fresh logs in the fire! Cool temp, but awesome smells of winter. Or the crispness of fresh fallen snow.  Both feelings are captured wonderfully by this artist.

He released a book with North Light publishing teaching how to duplicate his results with watercolor in 1999.

Member of both American and National Watercolor Societies. Has been published in those wonderful Splash books that have many watercolor artists.

Go paint a farm scene today!
