i’m jealous of robert townsend

Watercolor on paper. Um. What?! That metallic oil can, that mixer… but how? The matchbook and candles are oil on panel, but still, I’m in awe… Yes, Robert Townsend, you have me baffled. Hm, it feels pretty good on a Wednesday morning, actually. Thanks, Robert.

    LOVE Robert Townsend’s work. I fell in love the moment I saw the blender & cracker tin ( my parents had one just like it! ).

    Love Robert Townsend’s work. We are thrilled to be featuring several of his painting this September at the BMoA, including Stable Flo, Housewares, and 10 Cent Spirals. Thanks for sharing.

    I’ll just reiterate what you said:

    “Um. What?!”


    That pretty much sums it up.

    I’ve come back to this post several times today, Danielle. I really can’t believe these! I have many times been “accused” of controlling my watercolor too much, but this! THIS is controlled watercolor. AMAZING!

    I’m also very jealous. I cannot believe those are watercolor! Just amazing…

    the bottom two are oil (i thought they were all watercolor, but clearly i didn’t read the fine print), but yes, i have no idea how those first 3 are watercolor?! amazing.
