Feature Friday: Splodgepodge

I found Splodgpodge on my hunt for new watercolor artists. Watercolor is my favorite art medium and I would love to work with it myself but in the mean time check out Louise’s amazing art work.  Her birds are my favorites of course but she also does insects, fish, mammals, etc…

Here is a bit about her,

From Louise’s own words:  

I have been drawing and painting most of my life and I have been teaching others to paint for the past 14 years.

There is nothing more satisfying to me than creating the illusion of three dimensions on a two dimensional surface. When I look for a subject to paint, the first thing I do is look at the light and how it contrasts against the shadows. It is the light that can make or break a painting. 

I enjoy painting all subjects but I adore animals and they feature in many of my paintings.

Acrylic paints have been my preferred medium for many years but I have recently delved into watercolours and I am revelling in the change. I love the translucency, looseness and portability of watercolor. I also love its uncontrollable nature. I never know how a painting will turn out because watercolour has a mind of its own and I have had many happy surprises. 

When I’m not teaching school children, you will find me painting in my studio with my beautiful and faithful old companion at my feet- Chelsea, my dalmatian. I love her to bits!

Here are a few of my favorites in her shop:
