Nancy Collins is known for her vivid, effective use of colors to create dramatic, impressionistic paintings. She often paints with warm colors in the center of her subject and cool colors on the parameters, giving the illusion of glow. It's as if she turns on the heart light of her subjects. Her use of robust, vibrant colors often leads to the question, "Is this watercolor?" The answer is 'yes.' It is transparent, staining watercolor. Under Nancy's control, the colors take on an alluring luminosity with strong contrast essential to the unforgettable look of her paintings.
