Description Watercolor Original image: 15 x 22 Framed 22 5/8 x 29 3/4 During our trip to Majorca for cycling and art we took a week to discover the Island. The fisherman at Port de Soller were fogged in and hanging around the town. These two gentlemen were deeply engrossed in their chess game and not too happy to have me interrupt to ask if I could take their photo. But when they heard I was an artist they relented.We were the NW importer for San Miguel Beer from the Philippines several years ago and that is just what they were enjoying.
Diana Nadal, Portland Member Since March 2014 Artist Statement I am a native Oregonian, mother of 3, grandmother of 3 and wife of 55 years who had found creative outlets as an interior designer and business owner before focusing my creative energy to being a full-time artist 18 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.
