“I believe that the mark of a good artist is to be able to capture the different facets of life in his painting — the mode, ambiance, subtleties, etc. In a sense, not just illustrating or recording what he sees but expressing what he feels.

“As a plein air artist, watercolor was the perfect medium of choice: handy, quick to dry, yet delivers a truly magnificent work of art. Trust me, if you paint with no fear and a smile on your face, you can paint a masterpiece every time.”
~ Richie Vios

  1. Hi..really enjoyed watching this video..HIS CONFIDENCE in brush strokes amazed me.. So at ease with his mixing and brush strokes. I could easily see his fluidity in water to color…my biggest weakness! Thank you for giving me this opportunity to watch.
