Rheta Fines

Rheta Fines
My painting medium is watercolour.  I find this medium to be spiritually satisfying.
Usually I forgo preliminary sketching, instead place lightly tinted water on a
sheet of 140# Arches watercolour paper, dropping in the colours of the objects
I want to paint, as I like the way watercolour mixes, sometimes with unintended
and interesting results.
My various subjects are inspired by my travels and by nature.  Floral painting is
another passion of mine as the delicacy of flowers can be softly beautiful in this
I have taken numerous art courses and continue to explore this medium and show
my work in and around Toronto, and am a member of the Women’s Art Association
of Canada.
