Description Abstract Watercolor on 300 lb Arches Cold Press 20 x 15; framed 28x23. 1st in a series about using abstract design I find in Nature. Shapes and color play a big part in this painting. The magic of wet-into-wet can only be achieved using watercolor. Photos taken while canoeing around Hosmer Lake where the water is so clear you can see plants and fish very clearly.
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.
