Halo: watercolor series

algo me diz que acabo de começar a série de aquarelas que vai me definir como artista plástica. Depois de uma longa temporada pintando paisagens – falando sério, não faz tanto tempo, mas foi um período de intensa produção; eu acredito que tenha sido algo em torno de 100 aquarelas em sete meses, só para o tema “capim” – eu precisava de uma motivação maior do que minha paixão pelo Capim dos Pampas. Descobri que havia quase uma culpa, por haver pintado meu filho apenas uma vez, uma pintura que ele detestou e me proibiu de postar nas mídias sociais. Talvez por medo de não estar à altura das minhas próprias expectativas, eu estava postergando a decisão de pintá-lo. Eu sou a mãe dele, então, obviamente, eu o acho lindo. Ele é meu masterpiece. E ter começado essa série vai me ajudar muito a alcançar um patamar, muito pessoal, de onde eu quero chegar como aquarelista. Estou muito feliz com as duas primeiras aquarelas e, confesso, tenho vontade de pintar sem parar. Ele não é lindo?

Something tells me that I have just started the watercolor series that will define me as a watercolor artist. After a long season painting landscapes – seriously, not so long ago, but it was a period of intense production; I believe it was something around 100 watercolors in seven months, just for the theme “grass” – I needed a bigger motivation than my passion for Pampas Grass. I discovered almost a guilt, for having painted my son only once. A painting he hated and forbidden me to post on social media. Perhaps for fear of not living up to my own expectations, I was putting off the decision to paint him. I’m his mother, so obviously I think he’s cute. He is my masterpiece. And having started this series will help me a lot to reach a very personal target, which represents what I wish as a watercolor artist. I am very happy with the first two watercolors and, I confess, I feel like no stopping painting. Isn’t he handsome?

Edna Carla Stradioto

Edna Carla Stradioto is an emerging independent artist from Brazil and she has just started her professional career as watercolor painter in 2012. she had had her first experience with painting when she was a teenager, but she dropped out of the brushes to study Business, which she had followed for many years. Without ever totally abandoning her artistic side, she decided to give her a 360 degree shot in her life. In 2012, he abandoned his financial career and returned to painting. “The beginning was difficult, I did not have any painting material anymore, I did not know how to approach to the brushes and have no idea what people were doing in watercolor painting, I felt uncomfortable painting again. Totally amateur”.

Edna just paints watercolors. Explaining why he has chosen watercolor as her unique medium, she says “watercolor has a visual appeal that satisfies me. I can be soft or make me gush colors, layers on layers. I can build a narrative composition within others. The color palette is versatile. I can use paper, canvas, cardboard, fabric, almost anything to paint. On top of the watercolor, I can use ink, pastel, acrylic. Watercolor painting is so contemporary, authentic, and multi-dimensional that it dialogues with all other arts. Imagetically, it is possible to approach all styles, to make any theme, and to remain unique among all other mediums. I can’t see myself doing any other thing”.

Edna has been concentrating all her efforts to build her name as a name in watercolor painters. In 2018 she could be seen in different galleries, in Brazil, Italy, Austria and France. She is going to be in Nederland, Switzerland, England, Portugal, France again, and in Brazil, on the first half of 2019. Also, she is in some important online platforms. “I am available 24/7 for my career. I answer phones, reply emails and messages, I’m in the social media, I prepare projects, I paint, and I am pluritasks”. If you send a message to her, you need to be prepared. She is going to answer you personally and faster than you could image.

She teaches watercolor techniques in his studio, in art galleries, as well as workshops in Brazil. Nowadays her work is focused on observing and studying nature landscapes, specially grass fields, such as Cortaderia Selloana, known as Pampas Grass.
