About the Artist Rick Tuthill is an artist who works primarily in watercolors but also acrylics, colored pencil, pen and ink , scratchboard and other media. Rick's favorite medium is watercolor and his style is mostly realistic. His subject matter includes landscapes, florals, still life and the occasional abstract. Many of his landscapes are of England, inspired by his travels there with his wife Rita who was born and raised there. The goal in many of the landscapes he paints, is to try to convey a feeling of distance and place. Rick was born in Seattle, Washington and after spending time in the navy, he used his G.I bill to go to the Burnley School Of Art in Seattle, graduating in 1980. Rick is now an illustrator at Funko, a popular collectable toy company in Everett, WA. Rick also does comissioned portrait drawings using a photo for reference in pencil, works include Rita's late dad Bill and others he's done for friends and family. He didn't attempt his first watercolor until 1993 when he bought his first set of watertcolors, a small travel set of Winsor-Newton half pans just to try them out. He then painted a few small floral pieces with them. After that, life got in the way and he put his paints away and didn't touch them again for another ten years until he finally brought them out of the closet, dusted them off and started painting again and hasn't stopped since. Rick Tuthill lives with his wife Rita in Everett, Washington and paints every chance he gets.
