Elaine Wood, visual artist
Painting has become as large a part of Elaine's life and how she expresses herself as is her love of nature and the outdoors. While she has taken lessons over the years from several local artists, Elaine has had no formal education in this area. Simply, she has a strong desire to paint.
The inspiration for Elaine's watercolour and acrylic paintings comes mainly from nature, and she has been fortunate enough to be able to travel to places, often off the beaten path, where she has taken photographs to use as reference material in her home studio.
Elaine's interests are diverse. She is inspired by the highlights and deep shadows of her subjects, whether painting a floral, animal, person or scene.
Elaine has been painting in watercolour and acrylic for more than 10 years and as she enjoys a challenge, she sometimes incorporate new techniques she learned into a painting….sometimes the results is successful. If not, it’s still a learning experience.
