WASCO -Watercolor Artists of Sonoma County

 

Jeanne Lamar

"Since moving to Santa Rosa from Denver I was excited to find an abundance of new material to paint that was unlike my previous location. At present, pastels, acrylics and watercolors are my focus, their use being determined by the content of what I am painting, and what medium will best express the heart of the painting.
I begin my pastel and acrylic landscapes in an abstract rendering, later bringing the work into what I call a painterly realism, but leaving the basic feeling of a strong abstract design. Acrylics on canvas would also follow this format. My watercolors are very experimental, sometimes pursuing realism, other times fantasy will win.
All of my paintings emphasize strong composition and values, and rich colors. They combine intellect with instinct, with the latter eventually the winner.
