naturally




Walton Ford, creates magnificent, life-sized watercolors of all manner of the world's creatures.
While the work is often satirical and/or political, it disguises itself as that of old naturalist studies.
Truly impressive stuff for not only it's masterful creation, but scale and volume of work.

Wow, the biography and "artist at work" segments on that website are great! I spent a good half-hour on there.

YOu can buy the DVD with the segment about him through the PBS site, I've been tempted a few times. They also have segemenst on Barry McGee and Margaret Kilgallen.
If you ever get a chance, you should listen to this great interview that Walton Ford did for the Brooklyn Museum of Art:
