ABSTRACT
The article presents the thoughts of artist Frederic Whitaker as he reminisces on his career in watercolor painting. He recalls a time when painting in watercolor was not given the respect as was given to painting in oils as it was viewed to be a feminine pursuit. He considers the use of shadow colors to give his paintings solidity and cohesion as his greatest discovery and contribution to watercolor painting. In reaction to comments on his use of blacks, grays, and pinks, he explains that they provide the right balance of values and points of interest.
