Piece description from the artist
'Smoke on the Water' is a digital merger of 2 distinct watercolor paintings. The title comes from the Deep Purple song, and was suggested by the smoky quality at bottom, a haziness interrupted only by the geese. The rest of the 'painting' represents the '…Fire in the Sky' as noted in the song.
Richard Green holds a Bachelor's degree in music and art history from the University of Minnesota, and a commercial art certificate from The Hennepin County Technical College. The 35mm camera he received for his seventh birthday was probably the catalyst which would eventually lead to a career in art direction and graphic design. He is a self-taught watercolor artist and oftentimes combines a variety of mediums, including a computer to achieve the effects he desires.
