Transparent watercolorist residing in Western New York
Signature member of the Niagara Frontier Watercolor Society
I paint to interpret the beauty that I see in the world. I especially like to express my love of flowers, nature, classic architecture and ordinary people enjoying life.
My formal education was in mathematics, but I’ve enjoyed painting and drawing all my life. These seemingly opposite interests blend together in a style that emphasizes balance, perspective and detail. Shapes of nature are important. If perhaps I paint a bouquet of yellow flowers, I want to show the miraculous detail that differentiates a daffodil from a lily, a tulip or an iris.
I am infatuated with the texture of an old stone wall, barn boards, bricks, rippling water, an old man’s beard and the prickly surface of a pineapple. I delight in sunlight on a flower petal, the long shadows of late afternoon and the complexity of angles created by light on a building.
My training in art has been through private and public art classes and workshops with local and nationally known artists through my affiliation with the Niagara Frontier Watercolor Society.
It is often said that learning to draw or paint is really learning to see. I hope that my paintings are a legacy of how I see my life here on God’s good earth.
An Original Marty Kutas Watercolor Adds Beauty to Your Space
Original landscape watercolor paintings never go out of style. Landscapes have been one of the preferred subjects for many great artists for centuries. They’re so enduring because they can capture the essence and spirit of a place and time. The inclusion of the buildings and natural elements can make you feel like you’ve stepped directly into the moment the artist has captured. That’s what I attempt to do with my paintings. A Marty Kutas original is ideal for either your home or a workplace setting.
Watercolors are a medium to which many individuals naturally respond. That’s why so many homeowners and business owners like to showcase one or more in their home or business.
They work for decorating your home as well since you’re sure to find one that can perfectly complement your existing décor. My style does not clash with either contemporary or classic furniture and accessory choices.
