Kaaren Marquez

When painting landscapes or still lifes, I continually strive for ways to suggest a story—not simply with subject matter, but by using fascinating patterns of lights and darks, mood-evoking color combinations, and contrasting textures. My paintings emphasize depth and form by using rich darks, juicy layered colors, and granulating atmospheric washes. I primarily work in watercolor but am expanding to other forms of watermedia including acrylic, gouache, and collage. To see more of my work, please visit kaarensart.com.
