It is always an honor to represent accomplished, award-winning artists, and we are pleased to include Colorado Springs watercolorist Lorraine Watry among Hunter-Wolff Gallery’s fine artists. She says she is fascinated by the random shapes, patterns, and colors that make up reflections in water, glass and metal. Reflections often go unnoticed because we are looking at the object and not the reflections. She emphasizes that what we see reflected is different from every point of view and can change quickly, giving reflections an elusive quality. It is this quality that she captures in all her work. Lorraine paints a variety of subjects and frequently returns to those that include the complexity of reflection.
Her images of glass vessels and reflective surfaces not only highlight the intricacies of her paintwork but the variety of enchanting ways in which light interacts with forms. Lorraine points out that the detailed nature of her watercolors makes it difficult, if not impossible, to paint on location. Therefore, she works from her own photos and she makes sure to quickly capture the image in case the moment flashes by. She composes the scene with her camera but will make compositional adjustments to a photo or combine two or more images to get the desired effect.
A master of figurative, realist art, Lorraine’s lifelike artworks have found homes around the world. After 25 years working with watercolor, Lorraine says she is still enamored with the medium. We believe you too will be enamored with her watercolors and join the many collectors of her work at Hunter-Wolff Gallery.
