Foster in Phoenix

This delicate and subtle watercolour of the Grand Canyon - From Point Sublime Looking E.S.E. (2004) - is by English artist Tony Foster, who is big in the USA. So is the paper he works on: up to 6 feet wide! His latest exhibition opened this weekend at the Phoenix Art Museum in Arizona, Tony Foster: Searching for a Bigger Subject, and continues until 18 October (title link). The show features his paintings of the Grand Canyon and Mount Everest. His art is the subject of a new book: Painting at the Edge of The World: The Watercolours of Tony Foster (University of Washington Press, 2008).
