Stewart’s background in architectural illustration adds to his skill set and his paintings reflect his knowledge of good design. Stewart’s paintings have a pleasing combination of good structure with a painterly style. He is a transparent watercolorist in the purest tradition of watercolor painters. Whereas watercolor expresses its nature as fluid oil paint is stiff and seems to want to be expressed in a thick and buttery way.
