Leigh Bohne, a nationally-recognized architectural illustrator, additionally focuses his quality illustrative capabilities and visualization on virtually any genre of his art. He has produced landscape oil paintings, figurative, done as drawing, watercolor and oil, as well as structural and vintage industrial art which he refers to as “archigraphics”. He is currently involved extensively in watercolor, oils and drawing. His latest series of watercolors focused on the fishing tugs and lighthouses of Lake Michigan. His latest oil painting series has focused on how man and nature sometimes do not get along particularly well.
