Linda Koenig

I work exclusively in transparent watercolor on paper. My landscapes are formed by a slow layering of some 30-50 washes of brush applied pigment, which builds into a rich and luminous surface. Just enough detail is utilized to establish a sense of place. Always moving toward simplicity, I create an intentional balance between abstraction and representationalism. The core of the work is beauty.
