Joyce Anderson has been painting on watercolor for many years. Watercolors became her primary pursuit because she liked the fact that they could meander in a direction she hadn’t intended.
Due to painting, not a day goes by that Joyce doesn’t observe a subject that could become a painting. The interplay of colors in clouds, the effect of light or lack of, or the patterns of nature. Painting allows her to appreciate the “eye candy” around each of us. Joyce’s favorite aspect of watercolors as a media is the luminous layering of color. Watercolors are transparent and any color underneath will influence the color laid on top. That can also be an aspect to consider, since layering a combination of red on top of blue on top of yellow will ultimately produce neutral grays or browns.
