WINDING WAY WATERCOLORS
Original Watercolors, prints, and cards
I am never more at peace than when I am sketching or painting. I chose the watercolor medium because of its spontaneity and accidental effects. I love the bright colors and enjoy working with a very wet technique.
I have been drawing and painting for my whole adult life and feel that my career as a healthcare provider for children has given me a sensitivity to the world, people, and animals. I have been privileged to work with some great artists. My mentor for many years was the Denver born artist Harold Wolfinbarger whom I painted with throughout all the events of my life until his death in 1990. I also have been involved with Catinka’s studio in Rockland Maine for a number of years and credit much of my progress in the watercolor medium to her.
Of late, I have been drawing and painting the human form and love to enhance the piece with brightly colored garments. I paint people from the side or back so the viewer can see the figure in the painting as themselves, a friend, their mother or brother.
I enjoy traveling and take that opportunity to observe and paint on location whenever possible. Some of my favorite locales are the Virgin Islands, the coast of North Carolina and of course the beautiful midcoast of Maine.
I paint for the enjoyment it brings to my life and I love for one of my works to bring a smile to the viewers face. I truly hope you enjoy my work. Anne McMath
