Watercolor Animals Paintings by Dean Crouser

Oregon-based artist Dean Crouser, a lifelong artist that specializes in the watercolor medium, creates these fantastic watercolor paintings of animals.

“I like to use bright, vibrant colors and allow them to mix on the paper rather than the palette. I make a concerted effort to be loose and spontaneous and let the paint flow freely to create the wonderful ‘accidents’ that are possible with watercolors when they are allowed to work on their own.”

When it comes to painting, he tries to keep his work loose and simple.

"I am always striving to say the most with the least and like to keep my work fast and spontaneous. My goal is to capture the beauty and simplicity of a scene that anyone can relate to."

His love of fishing, camping and the outdoors can be found in the expressions of his art. His childhood summers were spent camping and fishing on the foothills of Mt. Hood, Columbia River Gorge and Central Oregon High High Lakes.
