Born the son of a commercial artist who was also a stock horse trainer in Kansas, Marlin Rotach grew up with cowboys, horses, billboard layouts, type books, paint and brushes. These beginnings instilled in him an interest in fine art, art history and a passion for the American West.
Rotach is particularly interested in emphasizing the dynamic qualities of light and shadow to create dramatic impact in his watercolor paintings. The transparent aspect of the watercolor medium particularly suits this desire.
