Marissa joined Developing Artists in 2010 after a friend referred her. She has finished the 'Design and Color' program and currently doing independent study. I wanted to celebrate her accomplishments by displaying a collection of her wonderful paintings. Marissa enjoys using the different watercolor techniques she learned about whenever possible. For the flower and seascape watercolors Marissa used salt to get the various effects. Plastic wrap was used in the bird watercolor for the backgrounds special effect. Marissa has a new found excitement about creating her own unique style and compositions this year.
