An example of how Ev "sees" a landscape, and alters the color to suit her vision. The trees are on fire with light!
A landscape highlighting Ev's light touch when working with pastel, giving a soft and dreamlike quality to the scene.
A beautiful space to work, Ev's studio is in her home, and provides a tranquil space to paint. She tries to paint every day.
A prolific sketch booker, Ev's shelf is lined with sketchbooks, each a masterpiece in their own right.
An avid gardener, several sketch books are dedicated sketches of Ev's garden, which she can see from her studio window.
Lisa interviewed me a while back, and she has the knack for asking such thoughtful questions. It was great fun just to sit back and listen.
