147th AWS Annual International Exhibition

My sincere thanks to the jury for selecting my work "Chambers Street -NYC" for the 147th Annual International Exhibition of the American Watercolor Society. It's my 3rd and Signature acceptance , so I'm especially happy, and grateful!


  1. It's a very good example on how to manage light. I find especially interesting how is resolved when light is coming from left and hitting to the buildings. The treatment of background is fantastic.
    I've learned a lot of it.

    1. Thanks so much Julian. I am trying to organize most paintings these days by means of 3 basic values - dark, light, and mid-tones. And if I can have some of the lightest lights be pure , untouched white paper - all the better! Cheers, Tom.

  2. NICE shadows/and light!
    You really created the mood of the city! NICE work, Thomas.

  3. Congratulations on getting into the show and on your signature membership. I can't think of anyone that deserves it more.
    Your dramatic lights and shadows in this painting are stunning!
