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

After a recent trip through the mountains of Colorado, I set out to paint a series of paintings capturing the majesty of those ranges. In this particular piece, I was drawn to the contrast between the backdrop of the smooth cool mountains and the wonderful, warm texture of the foreground grasses. This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Watercolor painting

Watercolor paint is made of pigments suspended in a water-based solution. Watercolor, which refers to both the medium and the finished artwork, is typically applied to paper. It is translucent, and appears luminous on the surface of the paper. Watercolor painting is a very old medium, dating back to the Renaissance when it was used primarily for botanical and wildlife illustration.

Paper

Paper is a very common surface for all types of artwork, including photography, printmaking, drawing and painting. Art paper varies in thickness and color. Read the notes section to learn more about the paper used to create this artwork. If not noted as framed, most paper artwork will 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.
