The Street Vendor by Elizabeth Oberman

The medium of watercolor allows me to convey my personality as both an artist and an observer. I enjoy working from the figure and painting people in their environment. As an avid people watcher, I feel the world would be a boring place if everyone was the same and I am drawn to what makes each of us unique. I enjoy the challenge of painting a likeness; but strive to capture the character of my subjects and the stories they tell. As a watercolorist, I work traditionally using transparent watercolors and primarily 140-pound arches cold press. I like the transparency of the medium and love playing with color. I mix many of my pigments directly on the paper so they can mingle together in the water.
