Yes, I include the abbreviated title, along with the signature and date on the back.

Love the name. Do you include the title on the painting (ie. back)?

Beau Clinton 9/13/2012 | 7:41 PM

It stands for You Tell Me About Your Dreams. That series was a lot of fun to paint, even though it took so long to complete, and is almost sold out. Thanks for your interest!

I just received Figures in a Landscape and I love it. The colors are wonderful. It is such a dramatic painting and it looks great in the space I had picked for it. I couldn't be more pleased.

thanks qi peng! it's very motivational to hear things like that.

So incredible! Watts is a fabulous historical painter whose brushwork veers between expressionism and conceptual subject matter (lot of "gay" subtexts can be red) just like a Gerhard Richter. Wonderful work. Highly recommended. And good to know that he likes Hernan Bas' stuff too.

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

This painting was created using the Flemish Technique, a classical method of painting comprised of several layers of underpainting to build up to a final image with lots of depth and a sense of space. This painting is on gallery wrapped linen with finished edges. It comes ready to hang. 

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Stretched linen

Linen fabric is the preferred surface for paintings. Linen is favored over cotton for its strength, durability and archival integrity. Linen is a rare surface in the United States because of its high cost. When a linen artwork is labeled stretched, it means the linen has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched linen artwork typically does not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
