Cecile Welten

Tricked by Time

Material: Transparent watercolor on grounded hardboard
Size: 30 x 40 cm

Imagine to be young and have to cover your face against evil. In a world suddenly no bigger than small. Finding yourself in the Middle Ages and enduring patiently. That is brave. The contrast between a modern young man in a midieval setting is enhanced by the paintingstyle in which detail and looseness are alternated.
At the end of her medical career, Cecile (1958), living in the Netherlands, started painting in 2018. She chose watercolor as the magic of clean, flowing, transparent paint totally captivated her. In her portraits she catches emotions and narratives, often placing persons in a somewhat alienating setting. After having seen the work of the American watercolor artist Ali Cavanaugh and joining her international community of watercolorists she switched to painting with watercolor on alternative surfaces like grounded panels. Homemade,with a steep learning curve, due to Covid.
