Striking watercolor paintings by artist Arleta Pech, have received critical acclaim for their high contrast, unusually intense use of color and exquisite detail. Pech’s ability to achieve both impact and delicacy in her paintings attests to her facility with her preferred medium — watercolor.
Born in the Midwest, Pech has lived in Colorado since 1960. Trained in fine art as a youth, she began her art career as a commercial artist. Pech returned to painting in the late 1970s when she continued her training in watercolors. Pech feels that the turning point of her career came in 1980 when she began to concentrate on floral subjects. At this time she began to receive recognition in local and regional shows and to receive awards for her art.
