Can It!

watercolor on paper 5.5x 7.5 in. / 13.5 x 18.5 cm.

 

I was drawn by Carrie Waller's beautiful paintings of glass and especially her Ball Mason paintings to attempt to mimic her work. I am in awe of the beautiful darks she achieves in her paintings and the strong contrast with light in her compositions. It's a great practice to try and learn from artist we admire. I also am a huge fan of Ball Mason jars, I take great care of mine and have had them for years. This is my day 27 effort of a 30 day painting challenge.

About Celia Blanco

I am from Northern Virginia, brought up in a household where creativity has always been encouraged. I developed artistic interests at an early age. My mother, who also loves art, was instrumental in this. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Maryland Institute, College of Art, in 1992. At that time, I experimented with many mediums. After graduation, after being required to work mostly with oils, I was able to follow my instincts more, drawing closer to watercolors. Family priorities resulted in a hiatus that lasted for some years. I approached the Arts again in 2010. I strive to explore the limitless possibilities watercolor painting offers and admire the endless effects that can be obtained. I paint a variety of subject matter, plein air, from life or from photos. What I find most stimulating are the seemingly commonplace moments or scenes that are often overlooked. I try to convey concepts by shaping and arranging the different creative layers the medium offers. I strive to apply myself daily, in spite of other responsibilities, forever challenging my skills and level of awareness. At the present, I live in Rome, Italy with my husband and two daughters. watercolorsbyceliablanco.com  http://watercolors-celiablanco.blogspot.it/
