RAFAEL MCKENZIE SOARES ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL An Exhibition of Watercolors


All Creatures Great and Small Watercolor Portraits by Raphael Mckenzie Soares The Barn @ Downing Yudain LLC Spring 2016

Welcome to the digital catalogue of All Creatures Great and Small, an exhibition of 20 original works on paper by the Brazilian American artist Raphael Mckenzie Soares on view by appointment in our barn gallery in North Stamford, Connecticut, from April 21st to May 27th, 2016. The works include a variety of animals and birds from all over the world, from simple farm animals, like cows, sheep and goats, to complex birds of flight like the African grey parrot and the puffin. Executed with precision and passion in the layered dry brush watercolor style of New England naturalist painters, Raphael’s paintings are precise and detailed, yet he moves them beyond photographic naturalism by imbuing them with a sense of subjective emotion and personality. Each work is unique not only in its execution, but each creature is its own individual self. Please contact us for more information, or to set up an appointment to visit the gallery.
