the things I love best as the editor for Artist Daily is getting to know the
artists in our community. A few weeks ago, I saw a mixed media portrait in the
Member Gallery that caught my attention. The painting--a girl with wild,
colorful hair and a tranquil expression on her face--looked like some kind of punk-rock
angel. The contrast of bold colors in the figure's hair--red and blue--and her sweet,
tender face were startling and lovely.
Looking at paintings can be like unraveling a mystery, especially with
watercolor. Layers are so delicate and there are many interesting watercolor painting techniques that
are quite subtle to the eye. That's certainly what I felt when I looked
at the work of watercolor artist Miguel Dominguez. I couldn't quite
figure out everything that was happening in his paintings. I had
questions about his painting process and about the artist himself. And
so I asked him!
