A hawk dives through the sky, the last light of the day glows on its feathers and the trees in the distance. The bird occupies the majority of the composition emphasizing its presence and power. "Free form of thought and many layers of paint give movement and life to this painting," says Pandalana, who draws inspiration from the nature in her backyard.
Kernersville, North Carolina
Before approaching the canvas, Pandalana Williams uses her vivid imagination to picture her subject in her mind's eye. While envisioning what she wants to paint, she imagines herself seeing it from all angles or playing it in her head like a movie. She especially enjoys painting from life, either from a still life she sets up or from plein air painting. It is not just an object to me, or just a place, but something that has created an emotion, she explains. When she paints, she enjoys listening to chamber or classical music. Normally, she spends about four hours a day in the studio but also enjoys taking walks in the woods with binoculars in tow.
