"Painting is my way of expressing the joy of seeing. By organizing the play of contrasts and vivid colors, I can capture the feeling of intense sunlight. This moment of illumination is what I hope to convey to my viewers."
Eve Thompson has been drawing and painting all of her life. She was given oil painting lessons at ten years old. Later, she studied watercolor at the famous Rex Brandt School of Painting . It was here that she learned the master techniques of transparent watercolor. She also studied with other leading artists of Southern California including Robert E. Wood , Milford Zorns , Roger Armstrong , Vincent Farrell, and Roger Kuntz. Eve has created paintings in oil and watercolor through the years. She has won many top honors and cash awards in professional art competitions. Her fresh luminous watercolors capture the very warmth and presence of sunlight itself. Thompson's artwork has been juried into the famed Laguna Beach Festival of the Arts, and has exhibited there for eight years. She was a watercolor instructor at the Irvine Fine Arts Center, and teaches private and group lessons at her studio.
