Is Your Watercolor Light Fast

Lightfastness


The colours of many old paintings have changed over the years, that is a well-known fact. This discoloration, sometimes even complete fading, can have various causes. There are pigments that due to a reaction with substances in the air undergo a chemical change, and therefore become, for example, darker or lighter. In this newsletter, however, we refer to another cause for the change of colours, namely light. Whether a colour will change or fade in time under the influence of light, and particularly its ultraviolet range, depends on the amount of light and the stability of the pigment. This property of pigments is referred to as lightfastness.

I am a full time artist. I graduated from the Western Michigan's Fine Arts Program and have a Masters Degree from Aqunias. Although each of my paintings is a unique expression, the common thread running through my work is a passion for color combined with highly textural passages and a fluid movement. I create very strong oils full of life and vitality which are an extension of my adventure with life and the joy I find in color. I divide my time between Michigan where I have my studio and my studio in Florida. I paint for shows, galleries, commissions, and eBay auctions. I am an impressionist painter, inspired by Monet, Van Gogh, and Cezanne, just to name a few. My work is colorful and and convey's vitality. I useing lots of bold colors.I creat happy,sunny, warm, colorful, vibrant paintings which will convey a sense of who I am.
