WATERCOLOR/PASTEL: Watercolor and soft pastels of New England landscapes and seascapes
Will be offering a demonstration on how to quickly capture skies and seascapes using large hake brushes and sweeping washes that tell a story without getting bogged down with tiny brushes and niggling details. Working fast and loose imbues a painting with fresh energy and the observer's immediate experience. Genevieve will show how to create washes, control the water pigment balance on the brush and let the water, pigment and paper create magic.

Genevieve Hunt is an environmental activist and mixed-media artist specializing in watercolor and pastel paintings that explore a rapidly changing coastal marine environment around her New England home. As a child, Genevieve spent many happy hours in her family garden learning botany and plant care from her mother, a master gardener and herbalist. Genevieve is committed to documenting the effects of climate change in New England coastal communities. Her education and experience in sustainability, climate science, fine art and botanical illustration, as well as her desire to protect the coastal environments around her homes in southeastern Massachusetts and mid-coastal Maine drive her art. Her paintings reflect local gardens, forests, beaches and wetlands.. She is deeply inspired by the works of Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, and Andrew Wyeth. Genevieve teaches watercolor painting to people share her desire to capture local natural settings. Her work is available through 6 1/2 Bridge Street Gallery in South Dartmouth Massachusetts and South Coast Artists’ annual Open Studios. Her paintings can also be viewed on her website www.genevievehuntart.com and her Instagram page @genevievehuntart.
