Flora and Fauna: Art by Lisa Baechtle
Artist Lisa Baechtle works primarily in watercolour, creating bright images that draw inspiration from flora and fauna as well as the artist’s own introspection and self-awareness. Through a somewhat intuitive process, Lisa creates paintings that combine an obvious love for nature with a sense of the supernatural.
I really enjoy the colour palette that runs through Lisa’s entire gallery of Wild Soul Paintings. Lisa’s painting style is one that shows a certain amount of reverence for the slight imperfections and blurred edges that are an inherent part of the medium, yet the artist still creates each work with a great eye for detail. Lisa paints her wildlife subjects with a beautifully controlled hand, while allowing space for wild abandon in her colourful, blended backgrounds.
Lisa also produces custom pet portraits, on a commission basis. The artist’s skill with fine detail really shines in these pieces, where the artist manages to capture not only the physical features of a pet, but the pet’s personality.
