Janice Baragwanath's website.
JANICE BARAGWANATH is an award winning artist and experienced instructor who loves painting portraits. She studied at Rhode Island School of Design and Cooper Union and earned her BFA in painting at the San Francisco Art Institute. Years later she studied portraiture with Daniel Greene in his North Salem, NY studio and figure drawing with Steven Assael at the New York Academy of Art. Originally trained in oil painting, she discovered the beautiful medium of watercolor when she started teaching.
Her work has been featured in Watercolor Magazine and accepted in juried shows of the North East Watercolor Society, Hudson Valley Art Association, Connecticut Watercolor Society, New England Watercolor Society, Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Society, American Artists Professional League, Allied Artists of America, Connecticut Society of Portrait Artists, and Kent Art Association. Since moving to Nyack in 2011 she has shown her work at the Edward Hopper House, Patisserie Didier Dumas, the VCS shows at ROCA, Nyack Library, Valley Cottage Library and Blue Hill Art and Cultural Center.
Baragwanath works slowly with lots of detail, often from photographs. In addition to portraiture she is inspired by local architecture, more interested in the patterns of light and shade than the buildings themselves. Janice also enjoys cooking and gardening . She paints close up portraits of fruits and vegetables, working directly from life.
