Event Details

The Art Gallery at Wilder invites you to view a virtual exhibit of 12 watercolor and oil paintings by Rashmi Rajesh during January. See her virtual exhibit through images HERE starting on January 1st and the exhibit video HERE. Rajesh, of San Ramon, is a self-taught artist who was drawing pencil sketches at a very young age in India. As an adult she relied on her drawing skills again as she pursued first acrylics, then oil paint and watercolors. Initially she didn’t take to painting with acrylics. Instead of giving up she tried oil paint and says both the process and the results were delightful.

After painting with oils for some time she began exploring watercolors. “The looseness and transparency of watercolors instantly draws you in as a viewer. As an artist they keep me challenged enough to have control over the medium to know when to let go to achieve lightness in my creations. The more I paint, the more there is to learn. That’s what keeps me coming back to these two media, oil paints and watercolors,” says Rajesh.

You’ll find florals, landscapes, abstracts, and still life works in her show. To keep her work fresh she experiments with different techniques and subject matter. She hopes her work sparks some kind of connection for viewers because for her, connecting people together one of the beautiful qualities of art. To that end she also teaches art classes for beginning and intermediate students. Visit her website to view more of her artwork and get in contact at www.rashmisartcarte.com.
