Welcome to Dori Stickles Watercolor. 

My work shows my gratitude for the natural world. I work from photographs that reveal the intricate forms I find beautiful. I prefer seeing things up close to highlight my discoveries on treks through the mountains of Colorado or the beaches in Alaska. An accurate drawing allows me to represent the subject as realistically as possible. I especially enjoy the challenge of rendering the little details in a butterfly wing or the center of a flower. Using several carefully planned layers, I try to recreate the three dimensional object on the white surface of the paper. It is a delight to see these objects emerge. Painting allows me to recall the joy of my initial encounters with these beautiful vistas. It is my hope that these paintings will bring the same joy to others.
