Joe Francis Dowden

I sign my paintings "Joe Francis Dowden". It is who I am as well as my brand. I paint beautiful river valleys, the landscapes and marine scenes of my lifetime and childhood, and many other things globally. I have worked in all mediums including traditional oil on linen. However the magnificent medium of watercolour, when used well, is the most superlative for colour, vibrancy, and light. My watercolour paintings are permanent, lighfast and will last indefinitely. I use the best quality, brightest, most colourful and most durable materials. The vibrant colours I use are incredibly lightfast and permanent.

"My first response to Joe Dowden’s work was to marvel at his command of the subject and his brilliant mastery of the medium, but this was only part of the total experience. Joe’s paintings go beyond mere representation. The light quality, the evocative mood and the sense of time and place are Joe’s gifts to the viewer. Enjoy the trip."
