ARTIST STATEMENT

 

I express myself better through a visual language. There can be an overall boldness in the watercolor application and composition. I am not afraid to take chances or make mistakes.

I use sumi brushes as well as standard watercolor brushes. They require an easy touch. I use colors such as violet and blue ultramarine, and cadmiums in red, yellow, green and orange for brightness. However, I mix my colors to create a variety of warm or cool grays and browns. In short, I can work up a variety of color recipes to pull hues from a wide spectrum. I can tell how well the work is going by looking at my pallet. I often use Arches 140lb. cold press paper.

It’s natural for watercolors to run and blend into washes. The will dry as transparent or opaque. These qualities are attractive to me. I work en-plein-air and also from my own photography. I find something interesting in nature; the light and time of day establish a tone or a setting. The line, shape and color are part of a visual language that create form and play a major part in composition. Painting is about looking more than putting your marks down. I will look at the subject many times before putting a loaded brush on my paper. My work is done when there is an overall freshness, a good composition and good use of color. I began to exhibit my work to justify my passion for the process. Painting is a celebration of life for me and the viewer.
