This week at Brush-Paper-Water...
I came across Sarah Bent's painting of a gerbera daisy in Watercolor Artist magazine's presentation of the Watermedia Showcase Competition award winners (February 2010) and was immediately drawn to her dramatic use of light and the sumptuous color in the flower, as well as to her wonderful sense of design. While she frequently paints floral or botanical subjects, she is equally at home with still-lifes, capturing the most humble fruits and vegetables in a way that reveals their unique properties -- whether translucent peppers or papery onions.
