Irena Roman paints bright, crisp, transparent watercolors, both as illustrations and for gallery display.
She particularly excels at the challenge of portraying the play of light across, through and around transparent or translucent objects and their often complex shadows.
You can find a selection of her work on The iSpot, though the images a bit small to appreciate her nuanced handling of the medium.
Roman’s work has been featured in publications like Splash: The Best of American Watercolor, Print and Communication Arts, and on the cover of Watercolor Magic magazine.
