The Capture of Movement
There is a connection between the physical and the mental and our bodies often express feelings which remain unspoken. In the same way that bodies have a language, so do paintings. I have developed a language of movement, action and emotion. Abstract Expressionist and Action painting techniques, are strong influences in my work. My paintings are built up from layers of observed movement – they come from life, my imagination and my memories. Simple, primitive colours are spontaneously improvised and dribbled, splashed or smeared onto the canvas, rather than being carefully applied. I see the canvas as a space for my gestures to communicate emotion, authentic and free, and for the viewer to participate in the formation of meaning.
Losing control and brush handling are my techniques in order to make a faithful record of movement and action on the canvas. In my work, I use multiple brush strokes: applying paint in observed moments and a series of rapid gestures over large areas making thick, swooping lines with unmistakable brush marks. I need to have freedom for brush-handling and space to express feelings so the size of my work has always been substantial scale. In the process of painting, I dribble and splash paint for a spontaneous effect. To create big marks, I also make large gestures across the canvas with different palettes knife. I have sometimes destroyed my paintings to invite new ideas and ways of thinking to come to me. My interest is more than aesthetics; my paintings attempt to express emotions that I hope can be felt by the viewer.

About the Artist


Meeta Dani is an internationally renowned award winning Indian watercolor artist who is now based in Vancouver Canada. She has done post graduation in computer science and has worked as a senior engineer for over a decade with reputed software companies. She is a completely self-taught artist and specialize painting in hyper-realistic style using the most powerful and versatile medium of watercolors.

Meeta's highly detailed paintings have gained international recognition in a very short span of time. She likes to paint portraits, birds, wildlife, still-life and basically anything which seems challenging to her. Light is an integral part of most of her paintings. She loves using bold colors and creating paintings that are strong and crisp.

Meeta has been selected as one of the grandmasters of fine art around the world in 2017 by the 'The Grand Masters Of Fine Art'. She is also the author of the book 'Realistic Watercolor Unleashed'. This is the only book in market for teaching a variety of subjects like blurred backgrounds, fur, feathers, wood, water, skin, and perspective painting on architecture in a photorealistic style using watercolors. Meeta is the founder and president of not-for-profit organization 'Global Association of Watercolor Artists' (GAWA). She founded this organization with a sole purpose to provide an unbiased international platform for supporting watercolor artists of all levels across 50 countries around the world, to help them grow and advance in their artistic career. She is also an active member in the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA), International Watercolor Society (IWS) and American Watercolor Society (AWS).

And here is what she says...

I am inspired by the colors, textures, shadows and reflections of nature and my paintings reflect my obsession with light and color. I love to face the challenges in painting complex subjects and find watercolor the most versatile and dynamic medium. I usually spend several weeks on a painting to ensure that all the details of my subject are captured. I start with thin washes of transparent hues and slowly build to over 20 subsequent layers of paint to achieve a 3 dimensional look in my paintings. Portraits and wildlife are my most favorite subjects. Although I love to paint in realistic style, but I like it when people say that my work is looking like a painting and not like a photograph.

I love listening to Indian music while I paint. Painting is not just my passion but also an outlet for me to express myself. Passing on my knowledge of painting to others gives me utmost satisfaction and I welcome anyone with their queries about painting in watercolor. My book, 'Realistic Watercolor Unleashed', has been written for artists of all levels in a very simple and understandable manner and is a valuable guide to learn to paint in photorealism using watercolors.
