BOATS IN THE CHANNEL ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR 9X12
Original watercolor by Ketchikan artist Amy Williams.
Dimensions: 9 x 12
Amy says, “I prefer to keep my work small and to say a lot with a little. They are meant to be an intimate encounter. I paint subjects that make me smile and feel peaceful.”
“Sky, water, land, and how we experience them are keys to my work. I choose to work in watercolor because of its translucent, atmospheric and ‘no going back’ qualities. Watercolor encourages me to simplify each subject with minimal details. Subjects within a painting are connected with lines, color, pattern, and texture. Each piece starts with a concept and a sketch, but often the original plan is derailed when the watercolor does what it wants to do. I really try to ‘follow the ways of the water’ when I work. I love color and work with both muted and bright colors depending on the subject.”
