Gordon Mansell

Gordon Mansell’s painting has always referenced a love of nature instilled from his early years of hiking, canoeing, and mountain-climbing. While Mansell is typically known for his large abstract canvases, his artistic proficiency also extends to watercolor. Mansell’s watercolors and drawings served as opportunities for the artist to explore spontaneous scenes and ideas that he encountered during his travels. The transparent and luminous quality of watercolor lends itself to the special effects of light across the bright sunlight of the American Southwest.
