Piece description from the artist
Working in watercolor allows me to play with different color palettes. Some work better than others. This one works really well. I found the model for this painting in my house and it will be painted in many iterations over time. Some will be monochromatic, and others will have hints of other related colors or colors that will complement, such as this one which has hints of green where the wings and the body meet.
Originally from upstate New York, Elizabeth Tucker moved to Southern California in her early twenties. While she had always worked with her hands in the "needle arts" it was her husband who encouraged Elizabeth to begin drawing and painting when he gave her an easel as a gift. Seeking teachers who would instruct her in the classical tradition, Elizabeth studied at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art (LAAFA) and the Art Center College of Design and took private classes with artists "Ryan Wurmser":http://ryanwurmseratelier.blogspot.com/ and "Aaron Westerberg":http://www.westerberg-fineart.com. She is in the process of getting her Masters of Studio Art at the prestigious Florence Academy.
Although the majority of her work is in oil, Elizabeth enjoys working in other mediums such as ink, pastel, block prints and watercolor.
A multi-award winning artist and certified instructor in the Michael Wilcox School of Colour, Elizabeth is a juried member of the Women Painters West. In addition, she is a sought out teacher in classical painting and drawing.
