By limiting the painting to one color, a bit of distraction is removed, simplifying the scene and bringing a special serenity to the painting. Too much detail in one color could overwhelm, however, so each landscape is painted as a vignette, eliminating the sky and much of the foreground. The result is a very relaxing scene that goes right to the heart of what I wanted to communicate in the landscape.

Getting to Know Jill

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.
