About Paul Bourgault:

Watercolor has always been my favorite painting medium. I love the fresh, spontaneous look of a well done watercolor…qualities that can easily get lost by overworking the painting.  The magic of the medium is the infinite number of ways varying amounts of water and pigment applied to dry, damp or wet watercolor paper can respond.  Sometimes just the way you want it to.  Other times beyond my expectations in a delightful way.  And, to be honest, sometimes it’s ooops!  There goes another sheet of watercolor paper.

Currently, my passion is painting “en plein air.”  Landscapes, riverscapes  — most always with a man made element: a barn, building, bridge, etc.
