ABOUT THE ARTIST
Marianne Neill lives and paints on Martha’s Vineyard where she paints gouache landscapes; including fields, flowers, gardens, harbor scenes, and boats. Gouache is an opaque watercolor, most used by illustrators for its bright colors and ease of application. Marianne Neill had a screen-printing business on Martha’s Vineyard for 23 years and used gouache to illustrate design ideas for customers before anyone used computers for design work. Marianne also does chalk pastels of the sheep wandering her property in Chilmark, Ma. The pastels are done in deep color and feature the sheep against an abstract background of grass and fences.
