I was really drawn to these gorgeous lush watercolors by San Francisco based artist Emily Proud.
Her work explores watercolor’s physical and transcendent qualities through abstracted depictions of the California landscape. Emily is inspired by geographical features, the environment, weather, and current events. She often paints outside or from photographs she takes in San Francisco and other places around the Bay Area and California.
