Lanie Widmar lives and paints in Altea, Spain. This painting is part of her series of European cafe scenes. "I was visiting Cordoba in March and was inspired by the late winter sunlight on the facades of the 16th century buildings" says Lanie. The work is painted using translucent watercolors, with a lot of drama in the dark colors for the shadowed areas. Earthy colors of ochre, burnt scarlet, burnt sienna, french ultramarine blue, and alizarin are the primary palette.
Lanie Widmar paints energetic watercolors of European landscapes and cityscapes. Her work hovers on the edge of abstraction and uses just enough pictorial imagery to suggest the scene. She strives to portray the essence of each location and allows the viewer to participate with his or her imagination. Lanie discovers her subject matter on her travels, where she photographs, sketches and paints en plein air.
