WaterMarks: Watercolour Diaries from Swamps to Icebergs

Painting locations: Arizona, Georgia, Washington, Wyoming, Cornwall, Greenland, Guyana, Honduras, Idaho, Maldives

Water, whether in solid, liquid, or gaseous form, prodigious or ephemeral, is a necessary element for life and quintessential in transforming landscapes over the eons. It is also the foundation for Tony Foster’s largest journey series: WaterMarks. Foster explored the frozen Arctic, the neotropical rainforests of Honduras, and the colorful, underwater coral reefs of the Indian Ocean to produce seventy-nine paintings of icebergs, geysers, swamps, waterfalls, and oceans in tremendous variety. Because of the journey’s magnitude, this series was amassed over six years of work and travel.
