John Salminen’s Watercolor Paintings Of Urban Landscapes


John Salminen is one of America’s most highly recognized watercolorists. He is a prolific painter who paints six to ten hours a day in a basement studio when he’s not out of town jurying exhibitions or teaching workshops. He captures his subjects – usually urban landscapes – with his camera and then paints them realistically with water color. Ranging from San Francisco to the Chicago Loop to Greenwich Village to rainy Paris to Shanghai, his subjects are consistently presented in dynamic compositions and his ability to set a mood with color, light and tone is unsurpassed.
