He preserved and advanced his mastery of the medium throughout his life, achieving a “miraculous” level of skill. For O’Hara, mastery was not an end but a means to achieve expression of his artistic voice. He wrote that “the problems of techniques and materials are of relatively minor importance” and that the goal is to use technique to achieve the greatest possible emotional thrust. O’Hara mainly painted outdoors, finding in nature a reliable source of inspiration. His later landscapes became less complex tending towards simple washes with spare, obvious brushstrokes. These later restrained and abstracted landscapes, of surprising simplicity, evoke a calm, profound power that stand with the finest of American watercolors. O’Hara worked primarily with transparent watercolors but he was open to other media. He taught himself several printmaking techniques, made collages, experimented with acrylics, and sometimes painted with gouache and casein. O’Hara taught watercolor painting at his school in Maine and at classes sponsored by universities, museums and art associations around the United States. O’Hara said that his teaching was “predicated on the assumption that art itself cannot be taught”, therefore his teaching focused on the development of technical skills as a means to self expression.
