Marney-Rose Edge SFCA, CSPWC: Watercolour Tour
Tour Date: Cancelled
Light and colour are energetic components of my paintings that stimulate the senses. The excitement comes when the layers of paint build strong contrasts and the viewer can feel the texture with their eyes. A mixture of loose brushstrokes and realism brings the painting to life. Transparent watercolour gives my work a light from within. Its fluidity and ability to mix on the paper creates fascinating surprises. On my palette are nine colours, to which I will add “guest” hues, to strengthen my message.
