Meet Kim Attwooll
| I am a member of a very happy minority, those who spend their time doing what they love, and make their living doing so. This happened in part because of the enthusiasm and support of family and friends, and largely due to my husband Jim's guidelines for a professional presentation and his creation of my web site. |
In the mid '60s I attended Wallasey College of Art in England, and after life's many detours, got the opportunity in 1996 to paint full time . I supply galleries and lovely shops across the U.S. with my original watercolors. They are sold mounted on blank 5x7 cards and as such are highly affordable original art. With over 300 images in 8 categories I paint thousands per year....and, with all this practice, they are definitely improving! Inspiration is constant and, in addition, galleries will ask "Could you paint a.......?".
The fun begins as I enter into the spirit of my subject, striving to keep the painting simple and spontaneous. Sometimes the use of negative space is the most effective. Wet on wet is always an adventure. Many "tricks" even table salt add texture and effect. The colors always remain a reliable joy! Watercolor allows me such variety, and by painting small areas I avoid most of its constraints. Even when the inevitable "glitches " of the medium occur, I am often pleasantly surprised. My goal is to remain in this highly creative state, and relate with enthusiasm that watercolor can be fun....Never be afraid to try it.
