PVW, based in the Maryland/
Virginia/D.C. area, is a juried society of watercolor painters
We are a nonprofit organization that seeks to promote the art and excellence of watercolor painting. Our members include many watercolor instructors who teach at all levels, and artists who exhibit at prominent galleries, museums and in nationally acclaimed shows. Some serve as jurors; others give demonstrations and programs for art and community groups.

April 2014 Featured Artist: Jane Gott

Jane Gott says, "I love color. During the winter my husband and I enjoy cruising the Caribbean or staying in Kauai and snorkeling. Painting the sea, sunsets on the sea, boats, and the colorful tropical fish are some of my favorite themes. I have also done many paintings of architecture in Europe and the Mediterranean. Ever since I began painting, I have tried to capture my beloved cats The last few years I have concentrated on understanding more about the elements and principles of composition and design. To me, this is a really tough topic, but one an artist must conquer to move on.
