Sycamore Leaf

I started this painting plein air and finished working on it at home.I build up the layers over my wet into wet sketch. I used salt in the background  and negative painting in order to try and recreate the effect of the moss.

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/
