Artist Alicia J. Stonebreaker, Polish born and trained at the Academy of Fine Arts, Poznan and the Kassel Art Academy in Germany, painted this spectacular watercolor on the difficult medium of rice paper. The duck hunter hiding in his duck blind accompanied by his beloved retriever, a classic scene. It is easy to see the rice fibers in the painting adding a unique touch to the foggy hunting scene. Things happen very fast on rice paper when a watercolor brush touches this absorbent surface. If you were to observe Alicia paint this fantastic piece, her pace would have been quick and deliberate, the total time to finish this would have been less than twenty minutes. That is what makes Alicia J. Stonebreaker’s watercolor paintings so spontaneous and natural. Her talent flowed from her heart, to her brush, and onto her beautiful paintings.
