Meet Laurel Macdonald - Oil, Watercolor, and Linocut Artist

Laurel McDonald’s linocuts are very much like the artist herself; lively, dramatic and always different. Laurel works in oils and watercolor, but she revels in her linocut work which she calls her “kitchen table art”. What is a linocut? It is a highly graphic printmaking technique, similar to a woodcut, but using linoleum as the relief surface. Linocuts are fun to make, affordable and can be used over and over again to print images. Laurel prints her linocuts in a single solid color and then embellishes them with water color, acrylics and gouache. Her coloring technique adds depth and vivid color to each piece and her inspirations come from her travel, her garden, her friends and family and nature.

To learn a bit more about Laurel, see her dramatic art and learn about her creative process, join the Colfax Arts Council and the Colfax Library for her “Meet the Artist” presentation on Thursday, March 6 at 7:00 PM.
