Announcement   Welcome!

Given the right light, everyday life can be heart-stoppingly beautiful. I try to catch that heart-stopping moment in paint. And because I am an painter, not a photographer, I exaggerate color and contrast to capture not only the look but the feeling of the moment.

I paint the moment in watercolor because the paintings I am most drawn to are in that medium. I try to take advantage of the difficulties of working with such a wet and unforgiving medium. I love the happy accidents that come from the paint moving around on the paper by itself. I mix most of my colors on the paper rather than the palette so that the colors change subtly across the painting. No two shadows are ever exactly the same hue.

My subjects are the people, places and things I love. I hope you find something to love here too.

Unless otherwise noted all paintings are watercolor on archival paper, usually Arches 140# cold-pressed paper. I also paint on Ampersand's aquaboard. Aquaboard is archival and durable. I finish my aquaboard paintings with a clear polymer varnish so that they can be hung without glass or other glazing.


All greeting card sets are reproductions of my own original watercolors on creamy linen card stock with matching envelopes.


Please visit my new esty store: www.etsy.com/shop/JenniferArmitage where I sell my polymer clay animals.
