Diane Tharp is a watercolor artist residing in Auburn, California. She was an elementary teacher for 30 years and recently retired, so now she has even more time and freedom for painting. Diane has been painting watercolors for about 20 years and tends to paint in themes based on nature. She often infuses humor and whimsy in her paintings, which make them twice the fun to paint.
Diane says, “Painting a watercolor is an unfolding mystery. You don’t know the outcome until the end. The artist has an idea in her mind, but the fluid pigments have minds of their own. The painting evolves and the outcome is always a surprise, be it successful or disappointing. Painting watercolors is always a path of wonderment for me, and I never tire of the journey!”
