Sandy Haight's Profile

About

Seattle artist Sandy Haight is pleased to present figure paintings with both Sumi ink on rice paper, and watercolor figures showing unique results in both mediums.

Sandy works from the live model. Her sumi paintings use various brushes to explore different line and tone qualities. In the Sumie tradition, the artwork is mounted with a cornstarch medium onto masa, a smooth backing paper, which flattens the work and brings out the brilliance of the tones. Many works are stamped with Sandy’s chop and signed. Her watercolor figures are fresh and expressive with colors blending on the paper and allowing the white of the paper to weave through the figure as highlights or the separate the flow of color areas from over mixing. The results are elegant, fresh and expressive revealing the figure in a unique way.
