Watercolor art doesn't get nearly enough attention as it should. From a technical standpoint, with washes of transparent color and methodical negative space, it's a pretty bad ass way to paint. From an aesthetic standpoint, nothing beats the effects of a well done watercolor. 

This March at Compound Gallery, we're celebrating this underrated medium with some of the best national and international watercolor you've ever seen.
