Sandra’s Process for Original Paintings

“My original paintings are watercolor and ink. This mixed media creates a graphic image that I enjoy. I apply watercolor to the paper first to create light, shadow, and areas of color appropriate to my subject matter. The ink line is applied last and is determined by the naturally occurring patterns in the watercolor. This makes for a spontaneous line flow which works well with the structure of the image.

When framing original works, I use only archival mats personally chosen to enhance the artwork. Some pieces are double matted. All mats are cut to be generous, about 1 inch larger than normal, in order to present the piece well. I also chose frames individually to ensure than the painting is in its own element. Careful consideration of mats and frames will focus the artwork and make it a striking piece.”
