About the Artist: Diane B Shabino, TWSA, IWS, WWS

Signature membership in the Transparent Watercolor Sociey & Illinois Watercolor Society and juried member of the Wisconsin Watercolor Society
My objective as an artist is to create pleasing, well-rendered yet original artwork primarily in transparent watercolor technique. I depend on strong drawing skills and traditional art training.  From this foundation, I try to create special effects and moods through manipulation of the media and composition. I am drawn to a large variety of subjects and enjoy rendering subjects as well as experimenting with different media in both representational and non-objective artwork.
I particularly enjoy rendering portraits in watercolor, capturing the physical likeness and the personality of the subject, a real challenge in any media, particularly watercolor.
I am available for commissions from your photographs please refer to the materials included in the Commissions link
