“My watercolors mostly deal with technique, color, design and an image that may not be there tomorrow. I begin with a very quick pencil sketch. A watercolor is very spontaneous and there is constant movement of color and water on paper. They can be very physical because of the speed at which you have to work. Decisions and corrections are constantly being made, and that creates intensity, involvement, and sometimes frustration. The versatility of watercolor allows you to be very free or very controlled. The technique itself can become more important than the subject.”
Artist Demonstrations will be held in the Hibbard Gallery.
