WATERCOLOR LANDSCAPES Real and Imagined by Roni Wilder-Guidi

Art Exhibit: WATERCOLOR LANDSCAPES Real and Imagined

by Roni Wilder-Guidi 

July 1-August 30

Artist Statement

My watercolors typically utilize the wet-on-wet technique of painting. The wet paint is applied to wet paper, or the paint is added to a wash of wet paint. This creates a very fluid and unpredictable effect, perfect for dreamy landscapes. It’s a great lesson in letting go! Sometimes I loosely translate a photograph and other times my paintings simply come from my imagination. I’ve recently been exploring abstract landscapes, utilizing a similar method. I’m inspired by the beautiful Hudson Valley with the Catskill Mountains and the Ashokan Reservoir so close to my home.
