A New Beginning, Watercolor by Arlene G. Woo, Hawaii Artist

This watercolor was inspired at Enchanted lakes where I was doing dog agility training.  I loved the intense color of the sky against the mountains at evening.  I poured part, painted part, and left part alone.  This image was selected by Juror Jan Ledbetter for the Hawaii Watercolor Society Members Show in April.  Size: 15 x 22".  $700.

Red Cats, Watercolor by Arlene G. Woo

I wanted to try a different approach: working more with lines and creating a cross between abstraction and realism.  This is image is primarily watercolor but there are few charcoal "scribbles". (Sometimes my hand goes ahead of my head.). Red Cats was selected by Jan Ledbetter for the Hawaii Watercolor Society Members show in April 2014.   The image is 14"x10" on paper.  Unmatted and unframed:  $300

Diamond Mare, Arlene G.Woo, Acrylic on Canvas

This is the third horse for Chinese New Year -- "deconstructed" with geometric shapes.  I think I like this one the best of the three.  It was not necessarily the easiest to paint, but that's the beauty of acrylics.
Which of the three do you like?  Arlene G. Woo                  $400

Red, Acrylic, Arlene G. Woo

Red is the second horse in honor of Chinese New Year.  He is a little more straight forward but still intense.   Once again it is night, but he knows where he is going.  Your opinion?  Arlene G. Woo

Night Mare, Hawaii Artist, Arlene G. Woo

Chinese New Year is big in Hawaii, so in honor of the Year of the Horse, I painted three horse paintings.  Night Mare came from Maggie and Isabel, so they were sacrificed for NM.  The blues are intense for the night.  Let me know what you think: Arlene G. Woo.                $400

Garden Abstract, Original Watercolor, Arlene G. Woo

Oia, Visit from Hawaii Artist Arlene G. Woo

I was fortunate enough to go on a painting trip to Greece a few years back.  Some of the scenes have stayed in my mind with blue and white being the primary colors.  I painted this in an abstract approach on hot press.

Koi on acrylic, original by Arlene G. Woo

After painting a couple of koi paintings on Yupo, I decided to see how they would look in acrylic.  I think I like them almost as much because the color looks deeper.  I like the movement and grace of the fish.  This is an 18"x18" canvas gallery wrap and may be purchased for $350. SOLD

Koi Couple, original watercolor by Arlene G. Woo

Maybe it's the fact that we used to have a koi pond, or maybe it's the pond at my granddaughters' school, but I like the challenge of the fish in water.  This image is on Yupo which does not allow one to layer.  It does make wonderful water, though.  This is a quarter sheet. Please contact me: Arlene G. Woo
It may be purchased for $250 unframed.  SOLD

aMazing Journey, watercolor by Arlene G. Woo, Hawaii artist

This image emerged through pouring, scrunching, painting and drawing with pastel pencil and ink.  I gave myself quite a challenge by letting the materials act on their own and then trying to determine something pleasing.  I must say the longer I looked at the painting, the more I liked it.  I hope you feel the same.  Please let me know:  Arlene G. Woo.  This is a half sheet of Fabriano paper (my favorite paper).

Purchase for $350 unmatted, unframed.

Made It! Watercolor by Hawaii Artist Arlene G. Woo

Working on hot press paper requires FASTER action -- sort of like riding a big wave like this.  I love using the blues and imagining myself in the water.  This is a half sheet of Fabriano (22 inches by 15 inches)  We have waves like this on the North Shore.  Looks like this guy made it!
