Artist

Jill E. Poyerd
Leesburg, Virginia

Jill E Poyerd brings “peaceful, contemplative moments” to life on the canvas. She approaches the canvas with little preparation, instead allowing herself total freedom to create. Both her watercolor and oil painting works depict gorgeous scenes of nature with a style distinctly her own. Something as common as a tree appears soft and ethereal through Jill’s painterly style. Fun fact: she’s quite a history buff and loves reading historical biographies.

I'm so pleased to hear how much you enjoy the painting, M Dawson! I stumbled upon that tree while taking a long walk one afternoon, and was absolutely struck by its beautiful lines and structure. It was a joy to paint.

Today’s professional-grade paints and papers (which is all I use) are rigorously tested for lightfastness (aka how they resist fading under normal circumstances). A professionally painted watercolor framed with UV-filtering glass or acrylic should last for many generations without deterioration. My Products: Typically, I paint my watercolors on Arches 300lb cold-pressed 100% rag watercolor paper, a paper that’s been in production in France since 1492. This paper is designed to meet gallery and museum longevity requirements. In fact, most professional-grade watercolor papers reflect the same high quality. In addition, I personally make it a point to only select paints that meet the highest lightfast ratings within each brand, meaning the color should remain unchanged for over 200 years. Of course, any work of art or valuable document should be kept out of direct sunlight due to the bleaching power of direct light beams.

Over the weekend, I visited the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. in order to see their special exhibit on Andrew Wyeth - one of my favorite artists. Every time I visit an art museum, it occurs to me that in addition to archaeology and written text, artists have had a prominent role in teaching us about the past. Through historical paintings, we gain insight into prior culture and customs. Little did they know how much their work would impact future generations.

Y Durr, I’m so glad it’s safely in your possession and that you’re pleased with the piece. My husband and I occasionally pass that tree on our evening walks. Whenever we do, I continue to be struck by its size and how it towers over us. What a pleasure it was to paint it. Again, I’m so pleased that you enjoy it.

Y Durr 8/8/2014 | 12:28 AM

We just received the painting and it's beautiful as it was pictured online. You're clearly a very skilled artist. Looking forward to getting this framed. Thank you!

Did you know that professional watercolor paintings are extremely archival? Many people don’t realize that today’s professional-grade paints and papers (which is all I use) are rigorously tested for lightfastness (aka how they resist fading under normal circumstances).

Comments About This Piece

I've been anxious to paint this scene ever since my trip out West in 2015. I can still remember feeling stunned by the magnificent colors produced as the sun began to set in the canyons. That wonderful crisp spring green set against the deep violet canyon shadow. Texturally, I loved the softness of the grasses in the midst of such rugged terrain.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang. 

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
