Description 14 1/2 x 16 matted/framed 22x24 Watercolor and GouacheAmgen Tour of California race was not only a great race to watch newcomers emerging to the world of professional cycling but I got some great shots. There were days when the wind moved the cyclists around and it made for great shadows. This group was in the breakaway and the wind was blowing quite strong -- moving the cyclists in this pattern. I painted this smaller late last summer but wanted to paint it larger.
Diana Nadal, Portland Member Since March 2014 Artist Statement I am a native Oregonian, mother of 3, grandmother of 3 and wife of 50 years who had found creative outlets as an interior designer and business owner before focusing my creative energy to being a full-time artist 13 years ago.
My inspiration comes from family travels, wine, reflections and shadows on water and other surfaces, scenes with people doing ordinary but interesting things and portraits. I can't resist painting an interesting face! I prefer to paint realistically but lately my emphasis has been on more expressionistic and abstract subjects.
I taught my first workshop on Exploring Liquid Watercolors Using webbing, textures and other techniques--"Making It Your Own," and am interested in teaching artists how to start their own critique groups.
