My fascination with art and watercolor began at a very early age as I created my own comic books. While receiving limited formal training in graphic art in both high school and college, I am largely self-taught. Studying the style and works of many popular artists has both inspired and helped hone my technique. Currently, I have been experimenting with many different styles as I develop my own. While realism has more appeal to me, at times I loosen up and achieve a more painterly watercolor style. Additionally, I have begun showing a few photographs that were originally captured as painting reference photos. Thank you for looking and for your comments.

Today, Jeff Lucas Art announced the sale of "David & Goliath", a watercolor painting based on the artist's encounter with the two fish. Local Artist, Jeff Lucas stated that while SCUBA diving recently, he witnessed a small Sergeant Major fish intimidate a much larger Goliath Grouper from its home. Lucas said the five inch Sergeant Major defended his home very aggressively from Lucas as well as the five foot Grouper.

Jeff’s fascination with watercolor began at a very early age when he created his own comic book characters. While he received formal training in graphic art, he is largely self-taught. The artist states, “I often start with photography to capture my reference material design. I then create a series of drawings and/or paintings based on the photographs.
