Sue Zinngrabe Gold  --  --

My background is in formal oil painting, which I pursued for many years in the Midwest.  On moving to San Diego I was

impressed by the freshness of nature around me and inspired to paint in transparent watercolor.  I have always loved both

drawing and painting.   The directness, spontaneity and luminosity of watercolor allow me to use the best of both approaches.
