Rolando Barrero is an award winning watercolor artist. He has been active in participating in competitive plein air paint outs and juried shows in Northern California. His passion is painting street scenes, boats and harbors, and county fairs, capturing the light, atmosphere and essence of the place. People and nature are incorporated in most of his works and being an Architect, he rarely obscures building elements that he thinks has aesthetic value. Rolando believes that a good painting should tell a story.
