Many have the preconceived idea that watercolor must follow a certain path, namely, a loose style in which a splashed on effect is the only one desirable. That is one approach. Another approach is to use watercolor as a defined and thought out rendition, showing detail as one might expect from an oil painting. Gouache is also a medium that makes detailed works that compare to oils. I have seen watercolors on FAA that compare with oils. Very good!
Right you are Raffi. Few can match the style of Andrew Wyeth whose work took on the look of a finished oil but he worked in watercolor, gouache, and egg tempura. I have long been a fan of the Wyeths. For a number of years I lived close to the museum in Chadds Ford and went there countless times just to study the works of Wyeth and others.
