Marianne Nielsen

Once again, it is my honor to be selected to be the featured artist for September at Gallery One. I have been actively teaching watercolor classes for 14 years. Beginning September 7th, I will be teaching at a new location, the Fruitdale Grange. On September 3rd, Frist Friday, I will be demonstrating a new painting. This has always been a crowd-pleasing activity for adults and children alike. The kids are especially fascinated with the process and I love showing them little tricks of watercolor painting.

For me watercolor is a fascinating medium which allows for a wide variety of techniques to create light, dimension, texture and depth. Also, contrary to popular belief, watercolor is not as restrictive as some would have you believe. Not only do I teach my students how to paint successfully, I also teach them how to correct their mistakes and feel comfortable with the medium.

I am a current member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon, the Grants Pass Museum of Art and Gallery One.
