Jo Mackenzie
Adamant, Vermont

Jo Mackenzie is always on the prowl for small moments that take her breath away. Finding these moments requires paying attention to images throughout the day that might otherwise pass by unnoticed. But when the moment flashes, she goes straight to the easel and gets to work. Jo uses the NOTAN method of value painting to determine overall value patterns before painting. She adds layers and uses neutral colors to make the primary colors stronger in relationship to the overall value patterns in the composition. Jo loves watercolor so much that she always says, "I like to kiss it behind the school yard fence and write its name in all my notebooks." You could say she has an undying "puppy love" for watercolor. Fun fact: Jo wrote a book called Three Step Watercolors to show others how to work using her same method for success.
