Congratulations to Harmony's Artists of the Month, Vaughan and Harper!
Harper's work was inspired by the illustrator, Jen Aranyi. Jen makes marker drawings of landscapes and then beautifully blends a variety of watercolors together to create the sky. Harper's work was chosen because of her great depiction of the mountains. The shadows and texture she gave to them make them feel particularly real. Her use of cool colors in the sky was also well done.
Vaughan's painting was inspired by Lina Iris Viktor. Lina makes geometric paintings with a very limited color palette: blue, black, 24k gold, and sometimes white. Vaughan's work shows a complex composition made from simple lines and shapes. I was also blown away by Vaughan's brush control. Her area's of paint were masterfully done.
Congratulations to Consolidated's Artist of the Month, Lila! Her work was inspired by the illustrator, Jen Aranyi. Lila's work shows awareness of spatial perspective and making things appear near and far from us. She also showed great control of her brush when blending watercolors together. Nice work, Lila!
