‘Studybreak’ by Jean Canavan named Outstanding Watercolor

'Studybreak' watercolor by Jean Canavan

Jean Canavan’s painting entry  StudyBreak’ was named Outstanding Watercolor in the June 2014 BoldBrush Painting Competition! Which is sponsored by Fine Art Studio Online.

Jean’s painting was inspired by a book of Vermeer’s paintings and a chance encounter with a sleeping girl! She loved the idea of her taking a nap in the warmth of the late afternoon Fall sunshine and how she just fell asleep amongst her book and bag. Jean’s goal was to paint the warm sunlight and the feeling of a well deserved nap!

A post from the  Informed Collector newsletter recommends Jean Canavan “Watercolors with lush, rich levels of color, movement and light”.
