Mary Walsh-Martel

Inspired by the drama of light and dark, I have been on a watercolor journey to convey my fascination with nature, its permanence and decay, through the beautiful transparency of the paint.  My job is to harness the way in which watercolor behaves as it meets the paper, and to further allow the colors to mix and blend as they choose.  Allowing the movement of the pigment on its own often provides some beautiful surprises.

I use only 100% cotton watercolor paper in either 140 or 300 lb. weight and professional grade pigments to insure lightfast, rich and luminous color.
