  • About Me: Ben Watson III

    Ben Watson III (born 1949 in Portsmouth,Virginia) is an American contemporary artist working in graphite, watercolor, drybrush and the demanding medium of egg tempera.

    Ben's work is included in many private and corporate collections in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

    His articles and artwork have appeared in "American Artist", "The Artist Magazine", "Southwest Art", International Artist", "Art Business News", Rockport Publications, and Northlight Books ( Splash 3 & 4).

    In October '97 Ben was a part of de la Societe International des Beaux Arts exhibition in Paris, France, in which he was one of only twelve Americans selected to exhibit in this show.

    Micheal Sorrentino of Gannet Galleries said of Ben's work, "Mr. Watson's paintings, rendered in drybrush watercolor and the difficult medium of egg tempera are visual rhapsodies of realism. They invite the viewer ever closer to be captured into the intimate confines of his work".
