Larry Cannon started out as an architect and urban planner in San Francisco. The analytical and deliberative qualities required in those fields certainly help when painting in watercolor. No matter how spontaneous it may appear, a watercolor painting needs to be planned.
Larry Cannon works primarily in watercolor using a direct painting method on stretched paper utilizing large washes, glazing and reductive techniques. His work is focused on landscapes and seascapes of Northern California, especially Marin and Sonoma Counties.
