Our May exhibit, “The Spectrum of Birthstones”, opening May 5, from 3-7pm during the Old Mill District’s First Friday Gallery Walk will include twelve new watercolor paintings by Helen Brown, each focused on one gemstone’s color. The subject of her work is broad, including landscapes, flowers and even an automobile.
What better way to study color than to concentrate on the 12 birthstones of the calendar? Helen will do just that in her May show. “I like the idea of examining color as a gem because each stone reflects many variations of its color through facets and light.” Painting on rice paper with a watercolor batik technique her strikingly detailed paintings have texture and clarity and regularly wins awards in juried watercolor exhibits.
