I am on a quest for excellence.
I depict the energy, textures and movement of natural or urban environments that I see and feel around me.
I aspire to draw the essence of a subject, interpreting it, using my intuition, imagination and memory to colour the way I perceive reality.
A journey to becoming an artist of excellence can be an eclectic, rather spontaneous one. On a self-guided learning program, Roslyn Hartwig attended workshops with national and international tutors across a variety of mediums before honing in on her passion for watercolours. For 20 years, her arts journey has included sketching from life as well as studio painting, all the while exhibiting in Australia and, more recently, overseas.
Solo exhibitions include ‘Water, People & Flowers’ in 2005; ’19 days; 19 Paintings’ of location paintings in the Greek Islands, 2010 and “The Rock and the River” in 2015, a body of artwork depicting flowing water and mountains, which came from a deeper, emotional connection of peace. ‘Art as a lifelong journey’ was displayed in 2020, exploring a new direction of artwork.
As she contemplates the future, Roslyn desires to continue with the theme of finding a ‘place of peace’ within the hectic pace of today’s life. Moving from painting what she can physically see in front of her to also finding inspiration from within her spirit, has resulted in watercolours intuitively painted from her imagination.
Roslyn shares her knowledge of the technical components of numerous watercolour subjects through teaching workshops.
