Watercolor and Oils by Andrew Sewell and son Josh Sewell
Jan 4, 2018-Feb 25, 2018
Oil and water does mix, Andrew Sewell presents his works in watercolor and oil at the Dahmen Barn the Month of January and February. 
Passionate, outdoorsy and driven full time artist Andy Sewell captures what the Northwest has to offer. He desires to paint what would be difficult or next to impossible to capture with a camera, yet possible to visually create in a painting. He strives for an almost photographic reality in places yet at the same time produce an obviously painted image.

Andy enjoys the moods that can be created and captured in watercolor. The soft, light, unthreatening feelings which can be expressed through this medium, intrigue and challenge him. He believes when one can truly conquer the watercolor medium and keep it under control, something significant has been accomplished. Two years ago Andy added oil painting to his artistic quest, his oil paintings are usually much larger but he still has that ability to capture the light and mood of the Palouse.
