Plein Air Watercolorist Pong Apinyavat is one of today's foremost painters of the California coastline. He captures the many moods and colors of the sea, beaches, coastal highways and recognizable landmarks.
My plein air style might include painting the early morning mist, bright mid-day sun and flow of the evening sunset on the water. He states, "My paints and easel are always with me. My goal is to capture the beautiful natural world I see."
In the past decade I have won many outstanding awards including Winsor & Newton (Merchandise Award) Valley Watercolor Society Jack Richeson Award M. Graham, Inc. Award Grumbacher Gold Medallion Award and the prestigious Best of Show from the Weisman Museum, Pepperdine University. My work have also been exhibited in the California Heritage Museum in Santa Monica.
I'm a juried member of Watercolor West. My paintings are found in many private collections and galleries in the United States, Asia and Europe. I currently jury many art Shows, give popular watercolor demonstrations and teach workshops throughout California.
