Claire Hardy paints from life, daily, studying color relationships. Each painting is an experiment, filtering what she sees into patterns of lights and darks, warm and cool colors, and opaque and transparent glazes. She loves the atmospheric effect of varying her brushwork with soft and crisp edges. The rich buttery feel of oil colors continues to inspire her, but occasionally she will also use pastels or charcoal.
