From my first visits to the Art Institute as a child, I was drawn to the softness of the watercolor paintings as well as to the beauty and light of the Impressionists’ works. What I try to create are impressionistic watercolors – light, airy, soft. One of my instructors says that he approaches each painting as a problem to be solved, and I think it’s the same for me. How do I keep the light? How do I arrange the scene and the objects to create a pleasing composition? How do I convey the feeling with the least amount of detail? How do I get the “vision” that’s in my head onto the paper? I find satisfaction in the challenge.
