Description Watercolor over gesso mixture; texture is created using several implements that give awesome textures just waiting for the design and composition to bring them to life. My first attempt using this technique was awful and so I reapplied the mixture and played with different motions to let the underneath colors come through. I felt several emotions when I first saw this and stayed within my plan to create movement and texture. The more neutral colors were pleasing and their placement leads you through the painting. Double matted and framed 15 5/8 h x 20 w.
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.
