Check Out An Excerpt from Splash 12 As Zhou Tianya Discusses Her Piece "The Light From the Heaven":

"For this painting I used a unique technique that I call "washing off," which allows me to achieve the effects of rich, strong darks that still breathe. I wet the paper on which a detailed sketch has been made, and apply a thin layer of paint to the whole picture wet-into-wet. When it dries, I apply a thick layer of paint to all the details (dry-into-dry), but preserve light areas. The layer of paint is so thick that it covers all the pores of the paper and the colors lose their transparency. After it dries, I spray a mist of water and gently wash off the paint with a soft brush to reveal the tooth of the paper without removing all the paint. This thick paint application and washing-off process is repeated several times until the colors become rich and strong but remain translucent, and the paper texture is also preserved. Finally, here, I applied a light layer of white oil pastel to accent the paper texture where it was less visible. The result is a painting that shows the sky light from an unrevealed opening, seeming to reveal a hidden message about our existence in which we praise the fortitude of life, and we sigh for its fragility."

Here are Just a Few Artist's Interpretation of Artistic Vision:

" For me the joy of painting is to see beauty in the ordinary and create enriched fragments of life which might never be seen except through the eye of the artist." — Geraldine McKeown
"Stay in touch with the artist within by asking I wonder what would happen if? And your paintings will flow out." — Patricia Schmidt
