Dance of life theme: watercolour painting


This year the theme for the Material Girl statewide selected work exhibition is Dance of life. I have been playing with an idea and have completed two watercolours on this. Now to see if my entry makes it through the selection process. I am posting images of both works
My artist statement which is rather personal:
Little bottles of insulin have maintained my life….. enabled the journey. But as my legs no longer dance, I dance with the brush, I dance with paint. My life dance is full of colour from the palette and within.
Materials used…. soft white Langton (Daler Rowney) watercolour paper, 300gsm, rough. Soft Chinese goat hair and squirrel teardrop brushes which “dance” well. intense watercolours.antonysen_evelyn_I am alive 2

    Nice work Evelyn, with great use of symbolism. Best of luck!

  2. So beautiful, the work bounces off the page. Flowing colours.

    • These colours are lovely if you want good saturation…. Koh-i-noor intense watercolour disc set. I love you expression “the work bounces off the page”. Thank you

    Evelyn, these are really stunning! Love the concept and also reading about the personal place from which they came. If you would like, please check out a song I wrote called “Watercolor.” http://wp.me/p3mOze-m.
