Generation by Diane Forest | Splash 12: Celebrating Artistic Vision

Generation, by Diane Forest, is another highlight of the winners from the Splash Watercolor art competition.

Splash: Best of Watercolor  |  Generation

Transparent and opaque watercolor on illustration board, 20″ x 16″ (51cm x 41cm)

What Diane Forest says about her artwork:
Generation is a celebration of life, with respect for the past and hope for the future. Symbolic references abound. In the foreground, my son represents today’s youth. The cool blues and greens characterize the present, hope and life. Leaving out light rays, surrounding the subject with warm colors and using contrasts helped to reinforce the dignity and timeless spirituality of this imaginary scene. When the use of a lot of water the surface became like a mirror. Once the pigments were introduced, I played with the elements until I obtained satisfying results.

Diane Forest’s piece Generation appeared in Splash 12: Celebrating Artistic Vision, published by North Light Books in 2011. Enter the art competition here for your chance to appear in Splash 14 & win other prizes!
