About this title


This full-color book features 220 watercolor and oil paintings by award-winning impressionist artist Katheryn Kelty Davis. Painting for over seventy years in all media and around the world her paintings are colorful, relaxed, accurate and portray the spirit of the subject. Painting the colors she saw in light and shadow, she played down details to let the viewer's imagination soar. She captured the transient mood of the subject, be it landscape, portrait, children playing, horses running, flowers, or other, by painting directly from nature. The wide variety of subjects are categorized into 17 chapters and enhanced with photographs and discussion.

Editorial Reviews

". . . turn the pages and follow the path through the life and times of one of Oregon's premier painters. You will be amazed and inspired. The quality of her paintings, breadth of creativity, beautiful comositions and exciting color are just part of the story. I found that page after page, painting after painting, she had a special connection with each subject. She seemed to bring not only her level of painting skill but she captured, on paper and canvas, the soul, essence and drama of the subject." Chris Keylock Williams, Watercolor Society of Oregon, WATERMARK, Vol. XXXIV, No. 1, Feb. 2012.

"This book is a collection of paintings and sketches from award-winning artist Katheryn Davis. Author Leroy Krzycki guides the reader through more than five decades of Davis' work. From capturing landscapes, figures of history, biblical scenes, family, and much more, each masterpiece is presented in a full-color reproduction. Enticing and sweeping works of watercolor and oil, the book is well worth considering for coffee table and art collections. Highly recommended."
