I'm Priscilla George, a Watercolorist, based near Baltimore Maryland. What is a watercolorist? Well, it's someone who paints with watercolors. I love the fluidity, translucency, and vibrancy of watercolor paint. All these characteristics help me express the way I see the world. I'd call myself a nature and animal lover. All my work features one of these themes but in a detailed and colorful way. I just can't get enough of capturing the beautiful world around me and all the creatures in it!
Besides what I described above, watercolor was not my first love. I started painting with oils and then moved on to acrylics. When my daughter was born I found it difficult to paint because of the intensive setup and clean up. My little curious explorer couldn't help getting her hands all in my paint and over my canvases. That is when I turned to watercolor because of its clean setup and easy takedown along with it quickness to dry. It wasn't easy at first and I had no experience with watercolor. Before I knew it, watercolor felt like home. Now I paint detailed, and when you think of watercolor paintings detailed is not the first thing that comes to mind. I sure did battle with this fact in the beginning because I felt that I needed to create the stereotypical loose flowing paintings associated with watercolor. Now I have fully embraced how I paint and tossed out any preconceived constraints I gave myself in the beginning.
Did You Go to Art School?
Yes, I did....but I never finished. I attended a year at Maine College of Art and a year at Art Institute of Dallas. I'm lucky to have had a fantastic High School with tons of art classes. After school, I would take an occasional art class at the local art store. Art School was a dream of mine but the cost was high and I felt I could do without the debt.
Where do you sell your work?
You can find my paintings and prints in my shop. I also sell at West Annapolis Artworks. Every year I do several festivals. Subscribe to my newsletter to be notified of my next art festival or follow me on facebook.
Do you teach watercolor?
Funny you ask, I'm just dipping my foot into watercolor classes. I've started by hosting simple watercolor paint nights to introduce people to watercolor in a fun 2-hour class. If you are interested in having me teach a paint night or intensive watercolor class drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org . Look for online courses in the future.
