ANNE'S WATERCOLOR

Once upon a time (long, long ago) I had a girlfriend who had a talent that I was very unaware of. After a thirty year separation, we reconnected and I now get to enjoy her wonderful art.

OUT OF THE WAY

"When the work takes over, then the artist is enabled to get out of the way, not to interfere. When the work takes over, the artist listens."   ~Madeleine L'Engle~

ALCOHOL HELPS

...but not the way you might think. I finished a test pastel I've been working on using a technique I saw Australian artist Leesa Padget do on Youtube. Alcohol is used on the pastels in the under painting. I sort of chickened out and didn't go as far as Leesa does, but a good learning experience.
