Watercolors, Acrylics and Other Media
The medium of watercolor has always fascinated Rosamond and she studied with some of the great instructors of our time, especially Edgar Whitney in his legendary Maine workshops. He, and other inspirational teachers, gave her the basics of this transparent, slippery and difficult medium and then challenged her to reach outside mere technique to find her own way to express the beauty and the inner thoughts that she wanted to put on paper.
The evolution of Rosamond’s watercolor painting has followed the evolution of modern art in the 20th century, often abandoning the purity of the medium to add gouache, acrylic and collage to enhance the work and to experiment with new approaches. Often pencil, pen and ink have been added and crayons and pastels used in her later work. Her subject matter ranges from simple renditions of birds from the St. Augustine Alligator Farm rookery to elaborate and involved expressions of Seminole Indians with imagery of historic figures and decorative borders. Boats, human figures in landscape, flowering plants, stormy skies and architecture are some of her favorite things to paint, but often with an interesting change of approach or design to give the painting additional impact.
