Watercolour Artist

Jennifer Lawson – Fine Art Watercolour Painter

Jennifer Lawson is a well-known Canadian artist known for her beautiful watercolours. For over 25 years, she has been mixing pure colours with clear water to capture her intimate vision of a world of softened light. 

“Jennifer lives the life she paints at her warm and welcoming historic home overlooking the Cowichan Estuary. Her art reveals her as an optimist who is absorbed in the beauty around her, whether it is a quaint cerulean blue bench nestled under a blossoming tree, a highland cow standing knee-deep in luxuriant grass, an inviting tea service laid out on a wheelbarrow, or idyllic-looking home set in a bucolic countryside.”

This painting was created using a technique that adds a bit of abstraction and interest to the standard watercolour technique. It was first painted in large, unequal rectangles of colour. It is then completed by painting with either the complement to the colour below or a deeper version of the same! This unusual approach makes for a bit of variety in one’s oeuvre.
