Description 22 x 15 Image painted in transparent and opaque watercolors. Framed: 28x22 There is a quaint feeling about each fishing port Ive visited. I started out with a full sheet painting and tore it in half to leave this more abstracted painting of the sails and nets which the part I really loved painting because of the design.This design has potential as an abstract painting the next time I paint this.Ready for Tomorrow's Catch and this painting look great hung side by side.
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.
