Danielle Beaulieu is a watercolorist from Ottawa, Ontario who has channeled her passion and techniques to create a genuinely original body of work.
Her love of nature, as evidenced by her country living and her large garden, inspires her unique use of coloursand interesting lines in landscapes and florals. For many years prior to painting, she was designing with colours, texture and lines with plants in her gardens. These initial explorations provided her with years of practical experience applying many of the same theories to paintings, e.g., lost edges, complementary colors, etc.
As Danielle explores transparentwatercolour paints, she has tamed this challenging medium. Painting mainly from her studio allows her to focus on mixing her colours from a limited palette to create rich colours while balancing cool and warm colours. She is known for capturing the subtle differences colours in landscapes and florals including the varying shades, hues and tones and how the colours change with the differing light.
Her paintings are either on Fabriano paper l40 lb. or 300 lbs. which are made with 100% cotton, chlorine and acid free, guaranteeing long conservation and inalterability over time. She uses a variety of artist grade paints: Winsor Newton, MaimeriBlu or Holbein. The majority of paintings are framed with a non-glare glass (museum quality). Not only does this offer a better view of the painting, it also protects it from the light.
