This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From Arlington, Virginia, Jim Watson credits Spanish artist Joaquin Sorolla as his major inspiration for his self-described style of "contemporary impressionism." He spent many years as an art professor, and in his retirement spent much time painting and travelling to art exhibitions. His early training was in Abstract Expressionism as a student at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, where he earned a B.F.A. and an M.F.A. Although he developed a more realistic style and broke away from Abstract Expressionism, he credits the movement for his tremendous respect for the act of painting. After graduation, he taught at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga; at Troy State University in Troy, Alabama; and Columbia College in Columbia, South Carolina.

Jim Watson was also employed in Washington D.C. as a graphics designer in the government's printing office. He retired to teach, become active in arts groups in the Washington D.C. area, and to paint privately, and in 1994 was much influenced by participating in "American Artist's" magazines first Painting Holiday. It was a painting trip to New Mexico that exposed him to the wonders of landscape painting.
