Pamela Callahan is a retired architect who began her watercolor painting career in 2013. Through study she has developed a realistic style that emphasizes color, composition and tonal value. Her subject matter is derived from wherever she is: Florida, North Carolina, Lake Ontario, Iceland, Europe, or home in Ohio. She has participated in many group exhibitions and solo exhibitions.
“I have enjoyed putting pencil to paper my entire life. As an architect, I was always drawing - albeit floor plans, building elevations and construction details. Upon retirement and a chance visit to the sea, I dusted off a 50-year-old watercolor paint box and put brush to paper. A whole new world opened up! The built-in luminosity of watercolor is what it’s all about. Light in nature is the inspiration. Color is the added gift. The challenge is the capture: the painting.”
