Ann Jones began painting in watercolor in the new millennium,
seduced and challenged by both its delicacy and power. Although
self-taught through reading and experimentation, she has
participated in workshops with Alvaro Castagnet and with Don Andrews and
who taught her much about color and values. She’s been involved in
several figure study groups - in Newburyport, Bradford, Malden, and Rockport.
She is a member of the Newburyport Art Association, the Greater
Haverhill Arts Association (President), NH Plein Artists, and online at
pleinairartists.ning.com and studioartists.ning.com. Her paintings have
been juried into countless regional shows and received numerous awards.
She enjoys working en plein air whenever possible, savoring the luminosity
of the landscape and struggling to capture the light before it (all too quickly)
changes. Among her favorite locations for sketching and painting are the
Merrimack Valley, the North Shore, and the Atlantic seacoast.
