|Description: Contemporary colorist painter Kate Wattson finds her inspiration in simple objects from daily life such as fruits and cut flowers. Wattson's paintings are far from mundane, instead they capture the visual drama and beauty in ordinary surroundings. With its vivid contrast of cerulean blue, yellow, green and white, Kate Wattson's "Spring Daffodils" is a fine example of this artist's engaging use of intense color as well as her skillful paint handling.

Kate Wattson was trained in the academic realist tradition. Wattson uses this rigorous classical education as a springboard for her personal vision of color balanced with an abstracted sense of space and composition.
