Oil on canvas
A self-taught, versatile artist, Arturo Mercado (1938-2015) painted what he knew and loved best—western scenes, wildlife and Central Texas landscapes. Best known as a realistic watercolorist, Arturo enjoyed working in egg tempera, gouache and oils. His greatest satisfaction came from converting a subject he saw into viewing enjoyment for the viewer.
