Tahoe Backcountry inspires Watercolor Dreamscapes by Joyce Major

Posted on August 1, 2017
Filed Under Featured Artists

With all of her senses engaged, she creates watercolors that capture her love affair with Lake Tahoe and nature.

Meet Joyce Major, Incline Village water colorist. Joyce combines her passion for the outdoors with an equal passion for creating art.

Like many local artists, she draws her artistic inspiration from being here at Lake Tahoe where she snowshoes, skis, hikes and kayaks. Her backcountry landscape photography has also inspired her watercolor paintings.

Artist Statement:

I attribute the unique characteristics of my work to my lifelong love of the outdoors and my scientific background. I tend to look much closer and longer at things than most people.

The scene captures my initial interest, but it is the flooding of my senses – with light, smell, heat/cold, color, sound, form, composition – that holds me and keeps me obsessed throughout the painting process. So much so, that I always dream about my paintings while I am creating them. Hence, the name Dreamscapes.
