Roberts created his first watercolors in December of 2006. He approaches them the same way as his oils. In watercolor, he prefers to work in a small scale, usually painting on a 10" x 14" watercolor block. It was during a trip to Holland in the summer of 2005 that first kindled his interest in watercolor. There, Roberts became aquainted with the 19th century Dutch Hague school artists. He was surprised that most of those artists worked in watercolors as much as in oils. Sometimes they would do a watercolor version and an oil version of the identical composition, often to the watercolor's advantage. This inspired Roberts to try his hand in watercolor. Since working in watercolor, Roberts has a new found appreciation of the watercolor work of Sargent, Zorn, Homer, and the Wyeths.
