Richard Price is President and Signature Member of the North East Watercolor Society, and a Signature Member of the Central New York Watercolor Society. Born in the state of New York, he loves to paint the many moods of the New York landscape and the Atlantic Coast and the people who live there. He has learned from masters such as Tony Couch, Dominic Distefano, Lalit Masih and Mel Stabin and continues to study the works and writings of other artists.
“I think it is important that the viewer can share the artist’s emotions about a subject. I start with a realistic place or thing and use the color and energy of watercolor to express how the scene feels to me. I continually study design principles, color theories, drawing techniques and the works of other artists to allow me to express these things in new and exciting ways. My goal in painting is to become the best painter I possibly can. Although there is no end to this pursuit, it is a meaningful and long lasting motivation for an artist."
His paintings have won awards in many national and regional exhibitions in the US, including the Adirondacks National Exhibition of American Watercolors, the North East Watercolor Society International Exhibitions, the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts National Exhibitions, the Cooperstown National Exhibitions and many others. His paintings are in private and corporate collections in the US, Canada, Japan and Europe.
