Patricia L. Earl paints to convey the light, colour, and mood of what she sees and feels around her as Mother Nature so generously provides. She doesn't have to travel far to find subjects that inspire her. The gentle rolling hills, farmlands, forests, and wild flowers that she loves to paint are found in abundance in Ontario's countryside, on the hiking trails, and in her own backyard. Some of her inspiration comes from her view from the pillion/backseat of their motorcycle as she and husband travel the Ontario countryside or American southwest.
In her studio, Pat enjoys painting with both acrylics and watercolours. Watercolours are her favourite medium to work with as she loves the freshness of the medium, and being able to apply and pour colours directly on the paper, watching the beginnings of a painting evolve, finishing details with her brush. Pat enjoys the constant challenge of keeping the white of the paper and using the transparency of watercolours to ultimately make the painting glow.
