|Description: Contemporary colorist painter Kate Wattson finds her subject matter in simple objects from daily life such as these violets with a single pear. This painting is typical of this artist's bold handling of color and form. View pear detail. This painting of fruit and flowers is entitled "Goldleaf" in reference to the richly modulated background that takes on a golden shimmer in the changing light. Contemporary colorist painter Kate Wattson was trained in the academic realist tradition. Wattson uses this education as a springboard into a personal vision of color balanced with an abstract sense of space and composition.|
