Gil Robles, a really great painter!

Gil Robles is a guy I went to high school with.  We both went to the High School of  Art and Design in the late 70's early 80's and studied with the very influential and masterful painter Irwin Greenburg (Greeny).

He posted these watercolors on Facebook and I thought I would share them with you.  

These have such a life. I love the genre imagery and how these feel like NY people to me from when I lived there. I also think you handle the materials really well. I love where you've chosen to leave the pencil lines and then the brushwork is not overdone. Wonderful in how the calligraphy of the brush describes the big forms. You go buddy!

He also does illustration, character design etc.!
