Portrait of a woman in costume at the Renaissance Fair. I work in watercolor. Sometimes I begin a piece with a plan and an idea of how it will look, but at other times I begin by laying down an initial layer of color and texture and then find my subject after that first layer is completely dry and the texture is revealed.
My name is Melanie Harman. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. Painting allows me to pause and reflect on my journey through life. I am able to better appreciate the colors and beauty of the natural world and connect with it on a deeper level. Watercolor is my choice of medium; the wet-in-wet interaction of colors is fascinating and stimulating in all of its permutations. I am originally from England and moved to Phoenix in 1987 and have since become a US citizen. I live in a split-level house with my husband and two cats. We are active and like to ski, hike and backpack.
