Judy Mizell is the featured speaker at the February Demonstration at Mint Hill Arts at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 27. Judy works in transparent watercolor on rag paper to achieve detailed renderings of nature, garden scenes and landscapes. Her subject matter has recently expanded to include people in candid, “slice-of-life” situations. For her program, she will demonstrate some of the amazing possibilities of transparent watercolor, including several techniques for adding a background to a painting that will give it greater depth and impact.
Her paintings are original ideas from firsthand experiences. She and her husband travel extensively to provide her with ideas and subject matter, but her inspiration is frequently found in her own garden. About her work she says, “I derive my inspiration from the beauty of nature, whether it’s delicate birds or flowers, breath-taking vistas or quiet country lanes. I hope that my work will speak to the viewer about the natural wonders of our fragile planet and the need to preserve them for future generations.”
During a thirty-five-year career, Mizell exhibited and sold her work throughout the eastern US. She has received numerous awards and is a signature member of the Watercolor Society of NC and the Georgia Watercolor Society. She has been a member of Mint Hill Arts since 2008. She teaches watercolor classes there and at her studio in Mint Hill. She also gives workshops, demonstrations, and programs for art organizations.
Her demonstration, which is free and open to the public, will be at the Mint Hill Arts gallery at 11205 Lawyers Road in Mint Hill. Mark your calendars to attend and invite a friend.
