ArtNow in June

José Duclos

Linda Schneider Granatstein

Tuesday June 5th at 7 p.m.


Westmount Public Library

ARTNOW presents:


José Duclos

The watercolors of José Duclos are distinguished by the contrasts of zones of sfumato juxtaposed with others of vigorous brushstrokes in frank colors.The Artist does not fear to abstract the space. Delicate drawings and a refined palette  recall the beauty of her subjects and bring to light a very personal poetry. José Duclos develops and teaches wet-on-wet watercolor techniques  since 1990; she is an inspiring and a sought-after teacher who knows how to transmit her  passion.
