Supra-realism in Watercolor

Featuring Sharon Wise Watercolor Paintings. Sharon loves to create “real Life” images. She loves to paint those images that our great universe has already displayed. Sharon always shows the life force through the use of illumined images. As you view her work, look for the light & life force that is a constant in all of her work, a hyper-realism not generally characterized by Watercolor.
