LINCOLN—Missi Paul, a national award winning artist from Lincoln, Neb., is currently displaying transparent watercolors at Union College's McClelland Art Gallery until Oct. 1.
"These are not your grandma's faded watercolors," Paul says of the vibrancy in her paintings.
Unlike ink, pencil or oil painting, once a watercolor has been added it cannot be removed from the painting, and the color seeps into the paper as it wills. "Watercolor is technique first," Paul says. "It has a lot of personality and is hard to control."
