This painting was inspired by a fantastic cobalt blue door on the steps leading to the Casco Antiguo in Altea, Spain. I walk here once a week to paint the different light that Altea is known for. It is painted with transparent watercolors on 240# paper.

Getting to Know Lanie

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.
