Meet Artist, Pamela Blaies

I create representational oil paintings using the alla prima technique.  With alla prima painting, a work is completed while the paint is still wet.  Using this wet-on-wet technique, I often employ thin, transparent washes along with impasto texture which add depth and interest to my paintings.   The time limitation of this technique motivates an energetic pace to my work and helps to keep my inspiration fresh. I prefer to paint from life and am inspired by the effects of light and shadow in the world around me.  Black paint is not part of my palette.  I use color mixes and complements for shadows and lowering color intensity.  My limited color palette offers a virtually infinite color range and helps me to organically achieve color harmony.   I enjoy exploring the new inspirations I find each day.
Her studio is her favorite place to paint and display her newest works of art.  Her paintings can be found in private collections, galleries and exhibitions throughout Texas and beyond.  Pamela is a member of Oil Painters of America, American Women Artists, Artists of Texas and Professional Artists in North Texas.  She has had the opportunity to study with talented and accomplished artists and has also discovered that self-study and experimentation work well for her as she continuously strives to grow as an artist.  Through dedication, study and hard work, she pursues her art with enthusiasm.  While nurturing her passion for painting, she has learned to feel, see and connect on a deeper level.
