Arleta Pech -
A leading painter of florals and the equally demanding delicacy of lace, Arleta Pech captures her favorite subjects with a careful blending of high technical skill and a deep aesthetic appreciation for their inherent beauty. Flowers have been a constant theme in my work for many years, she remarks, but I still get a thrill from painting them. Thatís because painting florals presents a design challenge in which I try to achieve maximum impact on both a visual and emotional level. I am also intrigued by the special properties of lace which has appeared in some of my work since 1991. When I paint lace I donít use any white. The white seen is simply the white of the page. When it comes to lace the only thing I paint is the holes!
Before Pech began her fine art watercolor painting career in 1973, she was a commercial artist. One of her most noted designs during that period was the Denver Broncoís team emblem which was used from 1970 to 1988.
Her book "Painting Fresh Florals in Watercolor" is a top seller and she has produced a series of instructive art videos and presents workshop demonstrations across America.
