About Andrea Potter
AndreaPotter3[1]
I am a local artist who paints and draws using a variety of media, including gouache, acrylics and oil pastels. I tend to favor landscapes populated with human elements and artifacts. Lately I have been exploring nocturnal scenes. I’ve found oil pastels to be a perfect medium for rendering this elusive and mysterious time—allowing for sources of light (both on and off paper) to coexist with objects and figures residing in deep blue and green shadow. I also find oil pastels to constitute an interesting marriage of drawing and painting. I happily share studio space in Hyde Park with two other artists.
