My watercolor painting “Evening” won a third place award in Village Gallery of Arts’ semi-annual juried show. The juror was Kathy Haney, who has taught high school art for over 25 years. Her watercolors have won awards in over 30 local, regional and national juried shows. She is a member of the National Watercolor Society, the Northwest Watercolor Society and the Watercolor Society of Oregon. Her art is in private collections in the US, Europe and Asia.
“Evening” was painted with watercolor over a gessoed surface. I applied thick layers of quinacridone colors to a gessoed surface, and then wiped away areas of paint to reveal the stand of trees – a liberating, surprising method of painting.
