MEDIUM: Watercolor Paintings
Brad Fields is an artist who’s painting follows the in the footsteps of the American Masters of Watercolor like Winslow Homer, Chet Reneson, Andrew Wyeth and contemporaries like Mario A. Robinson, Rob Evans, and Dean Mitchell. His paintings are full of realistic details and loose flowing “glorious messes” that makes working with the medium so challenging. “Watercolor allows me to get those happy accidents that are thrown down on the paper and articulate the line or form flawlessly - a miracle if there ever is one.” Brad continues, “I want to entice your eye with realistic details so that when you really look closely -what you see is actually an abstract wonder. I don’t want my pieces to look like photographs, but I do want to draw you in and leave you with something to chew on.”
After graduating from Herron School of Art, IUPUI with Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Communications, he spent the next 28 years, Managing, Selling, Training and Owning various Sign, Printing and Graphic arts companies. “I have always made art, but now is my time to show the world just what I got. So, I decided in the fall of 2017 to join some local artists’ organizations and see if I had the chops to be a working artist.”
Brad lives in Fishers, IN with his wife Becky (recently celebrating their Silver Anniversary), son, Alec and his beloved dog, Daisy.
