Event description

Description

We are celebrating spring at Queen Gallery! Join artist Nina Rastgar for a spring paint night and learn how to paint flowers and nature motifs with watercolors. All materials will be provided. Open for any experience level.

Learn more about Nina's love for watercolors:
"I first discovered the magic of water-based colors many years ago when I began to draw with watercolor pencils. I worked primarily with transparent watercolor because of its character, and how it allows for wonderful blending and spontaneity. Most of my projects begin with preliminary sketches to determine composition, value, pattern, and space. I love the unexpected quality of the process. It is so exciting to never be sure what the colors and water will combine and produce. It seems as though the medium has its own passion.

I love the color combinations that occur spontaneously as the colors float on the water. You can never really predict what effect will result. If you try to control the medium too much, your painting will be strict and tight losing its liveliness. The artist must be bold and decisive or the work will not be clear and fresh. It is really like a dance; you need to know when to let go and when to take charge of the direction that the painting is taking.

I believe silence gives me the opportunity to be in conversation with myself. For me, painting and drawing are like a language. So when I paint, I am in conversation with others through my art. At the same time, it is a place where I can reflect. As result, my paintings are a fusion of realistic and interpretive elements. But overall I follow where the watercolor leads me."
