Description Watercolor Painting on AquaBord 20 x 16 x 1/8' sealed. We came upon this 13th Century Fountain still working over the centuries when we toured the downtown streets of Palma. Amazing how parts of the original wall that protected the city are also still standing. We visited in late afternoon but had to use my artist license to make him 'shine' as the focal point. I thought this structure deserved some recognition but I have to say, he has grown on me as he greets me in the studio each day.
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.
