Eva Bartel resides in Alberta, Canada. She is best described as a travel artist who is inspired by the raw beauty of the natural world. She delights in combining, travel, nature and art by making trips in a small motor home throughout Canada and the United States. An architect by training, Eva started painting professionally in 1993. She was elected to the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour in 2010. Eva is one of five Canadian watercolour artists to have their work exhibited as part of the 2019 Royal Watercolour Society Contemporary Watercolour Competition in London, UK.
I'm drawn to the natural landscape, painting what is familiar and accessible from a very human vantage point. What I see as a painter is not dissimilar to what, you, as the viewer see. These are not landscapes that are at the end of a twenty mile uphill trek, or views from a helicopter. They are quietly observed portraits. I want the paintings to work at both at the macro and the micro level, the overall painting to convey clarity and distance and any small bit of the painting to have craft and a delicacy of touch in the paint application. Often there is a strong sense of perspective in the work, layers that convey receding planes: foreground, middle ground and distance. Water, whether in motion, or still and reflecting, is a favorite. Should you decide to hang one of these landscapes on your wall the painting becomes as a window and enlarges the room.
