Featured Artist for May - Lorrie Herman
I've been creating art all of my life and still haven't gotten tired of it. About 15 years ago I started taking painting classes and fell in love with plein air painting. Landscapes are my subject of choice, anything from a historic little street scene to capturing a quiet moment by a lake. I love the challenge of painting outdoors, capturing the light and shadows. Plein air painting allows me the time to relax and create spontaneously and respond to the environment.
I paint in both watercolors and oils. I strive to paint my watercolors in a loose representational style with quality brushstrokes and wet into wet washes. My watercolor house portraits, however, are a bit tighter with much more detail.
