REYNOLD WEIDENAAR: Printmaker into Watercolorist

November 1964
American Artist;Nov1964, Vol. 28 Issue 9, p36
The article focuses on U.S. printmaker and watercolorist Reynold Weidenaar. It presents a personal account of the artist who engaged into the world of watercolor in 1955. He cites his renewed look at the world around him and his adventures with tornado weather, sheriff's patrol and marauders for enlivening his outdoor painting sessions. He shares the possibility of producing work within a car during storms and other adverse conditions. The irresistibility of watercolor as a medium is attributed by the author to his search for cultural significance.
