Zeek Taylor is known for his stylized watercolors. Primarily using a dry brush technique, he is able to achieve intricate detail not often found in this medium. He favors transparent paint but at times combines the use of gouache and metallic ink in the same painting. Work is done on acid-free clayboard; a white clay-coated masonite panel which has greater strength and longevity than paper. Each piece is surrounded by a meticulously hand-rendered border. Subject matter includes florals, still life, animals, and fantasy themes. He has been described as a colorist with a keen sense of pattern.

Artist Statement:
Working with watercolor, I often forsake the standard rules imposed on the medium, exploring all possibilities, while ever respectful of its' transparent and fluid properties. I paint with greater concern for style over realism with a focus on pattern and color theory. The one rule that I adhere to is "break the rules." -Zeek Taylor.
