Before approaching the canvas, Pandalana Williams uses her vivid imagination to picture her subject in her mind's eye. While envisioning what she wants to paint, she imagines herself seeing it from all angles or playing it in her head like a movie. She especially enjoys painting from life, either from a still life she sets up or from plein air painting. It is not just an object to me, or just a place, but something that has created an emotion, she explains. When she paints, she enjoys listening to chamber or classical music. Normally, she spends about four hours a day in the studio but also enjoys taking walks in the woods with binoculars in tow.

About The Artist
I paint to breathe, to live, to love. I am primarily a self-taught artist; having completed some drawing courses in college. I emmerse myself with creativity; and am continually learning through online courses, blogs, and books. I am awed by color theory. My favorite book so far is Dynasty of Light followed by Alla Prima.
I have been controlled by the forces of creativity since I was a very young girl. I would talk and sing to the birds, butterflies, bugs, rocks, trees, grass; and everything in my world - or try to create them with my crayons.
I am still that girl.
