Ink Into Winter

In late 2022 I began to experiment more with color. Because I love creating in the comfort of my favorite cafes, I decided the portable nature of watercolors would be a natural fit. After noticing it was difficult to achieve bold contrast with watercolors, I ordered a set of India inks. Both afforded me the creative latitude to get lost in glorious color.

I also sought out to explore the human form in movement, having focused mostly on depicting humans at rest in my previous works. Two images of dancers I found online served as inspiration and reference for those pieces.

And, as well, I had never attempted depicting landscapes before. There are two pieces here. The first, a cemetary, is probably the watercolor work of which I'm most proud. The second, a Florida beach sunset scene, I produced as a Christmas gift for my mother.
