CARMEN LAGOS

Carmen Lagos

The watercolor medium allows me to work fast – almost without thinking – just responding to the
effects that the water and the pigment are creating on the paper. So the final result is not completely
anticipated . . . each brushstroke is an immediate response to the one before . . . just like nature
responding to the effects of water and light. I feel very good when someone say that my watercolors
are calm – the result of meditation.
I work over Arches watercolor paper, I prefer the cold press surface, it lets me apply as many layers as I want. I really don’t need more than one brush for the entire piece, preferring a large #12. I feel better
working on more than four pieces at the same time. It keeps my eyes and ideas fresh!
