“There’s a beauty in not saying everything, not putting everything out there,” says Asheville, N.C., artist Melanie Norris about watercolor painting. With that in mind, she employs a restraint in her watercolor portraits, painting just enough of a physical representation to glimpse the underlying character of her subject.
Enjoy this gallery of Norris’ characters. Read more about the artist and her expressive watercolor portraits in the April 2015 issue of Watercolor Artist, available now in print or as an instant download at northlightshop.com, and on newsstands February 17.
