Jean K. Gill - Yellow Rain

Watercolor painting by Jean K. Gill from the Virginia Watercolor Society.

Artist Statement: Autumn splendor inspires me. Using vertical paper, gravity and deliberate misting is risky and engaging but not unpredictable. This fluid process, a strategy with options, encourages granulation, color mixing, varied edges, improvisations and spontaneous expression. The square format and suggested fencing contrast linear elements against a curvilinear subject. Peak foliage is ephemeral; flows/runs/blurs represent energy, transition and the inevitable release weather/time will produce.
