Watercolors and More

Patricia Heller



My education  in watercolor comes from years of study in the medium at various art schools in the Southern California area.  In addition, I have studied with  such fine artists as Robert E. Wood, Milford Zornes, Don Andrews, Carla O'Connor, and Charles Reid.

My main love is figure work either from my own photographs, or if commissioned, the client's photos.  My favorite way of working is from the actual model.   Many of my paintings are completed in the studio after a plein-aire adventure resulting in a watercolor sketch. I often work from my own photos as models are not readily available in my area.  

I am a juried member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon and past president  and lifetime member of Valley Watercolor Society, Encino, CA.  Illinois Valley Fine Art group was a sustaining part of my life in Oregon.  Since my move to Florida, I have joined Florida Watercolor Society and Wellington Art Society.  Weather permitting, I paint plein air with Plein Air Palm Beach.

I would love it if you would take a minute and sign my guestbook.
