Watercolour without barriers

banner small - the calling by catherine beale, watercolours on wood
My website’s new banner image is a detail from my latest painting “The Calling”. It’s a take on the Virgin Mary frescoes of old. I’ve placed the sitter in a “Marian” blue carer’s uniform, fresh from work.
This is part of my ongoing experiments with new painting surfaces in an effort to bring the viewer closer to my paintings by doing away with the glass barrier.
