Richard Samuel. Artist.
Early in his life, Richard began drawing action figures. His mother noticed his talent and started buying him art supplies. Soon Richard began placing and winning art competitions in grade school using soft pastels. He continued his study of art and high school, while living in the artsy community of Wimberley, Texas, southeast of Austin. His senior year, he was singled out by his school to study under world famous watercolorist, Lian Quan Zhen who had a workshop in Wimberley.
Richard went on to study art at Texas Southern University, while also starring on the football team. His football skills have allowed him to play for teams in Europe, enabling him to travel to many countries. He's been to Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Serbia, czech republic, Bosnia, Austria, Greece, and Germany. In these countries he has experienced the landscape, history, art and culture first hand. Focusing on the sensual nature of art, he loves to create colorful, eclectic, and realistic watercolor paintings.
