Newburgh to Feature Artwork by Joan Mester

Newburgh-based watercolor artist Joan Mester will have several pieces on display in our Newburgh store for the month of May.

“I work only with watercolors and, on occasion, with watercolor pencils. I strive to better understand the varied techniques which can be applied to watercolors. When I am drawn to a subject, I take photo references. In my studio, I add and/or subtract images to my drawing, and when painting I use fresh paints from tubes, mixing on paper or palette. Recently, I have been dropping paint onto Aquaboard for a more abstract background effect, This surface is coated with a UV resistant Krylon spray which eliminates the need for glass”, explains Joan.
