Cuenca is a medieval Spanish city with wandering streets and old wooden buildings hanging over the cliffs. Lanie Widmar painted this scene from a photograph that her husband took in the early evening with deep shadows against the whitewashed facades. "I wanted to highlight the colorful couples promenading in the early evening light," Lanie says. She painted the piece in her studio with transparent watercolor on heavyweight paper.
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.
