Artist : Lisa Huang // Watercolor Artist

Daniel Smith Zoom Demonstration on 2 Jul 2022

Titled " Merge Ink and Wash"

Born in Singapore with a professional background in interior architecture design, Lisa is a self-taught artist in oil, watercolor painting and print-making.

An unorthodox initiator in watercolor, Lisa paints En plein air, embodying her work with a field of energy, movement and life drawn from observing in situ. She composes her streetscapes with darting black ink outlines, mark-making and dirtying the paper as a start, washing and layering the pigments subsequently to merge with the ink as one entity rather than being detached as 2 mediums.
