Watercolorists from the Old Continent
From Europe to Russia

Liliane Goossens uses the “wet on wet” technique as she prefers, for surprising and intense results, between abstraction and landscape. She lets herself be guided by watercolor paint, water and her imagination. The watercolors are suggestive and sometimes quite moving.

Liliane Goossens is a basic member of the Watercolor Institute of Belgium (AIB) and Watercolourists in Northern France, among others. An interior designer by profession, she began to engage in watercolors for drawing and designing interiors.

I let myself be guided by water and paint, colors and above all by my imagination. The encounter between evocation and the abstract will always be a quest. A research that gives rise to watercolors that are symphonies of shapes and colors. My style is very personal and very recognizable. It is above all evocative, abstract and suggestive. You can see what you want there. Which gives particularly surprising results and can be very interesting.
I automatically develop my own style because I incorporate my own feelings into my painting, as well as my character. A painting says a lot about me!

Usually I let the paint and water do their thing and get driven around like that. Color can be a starting point. Then, the two entities of chance and control go hand in hand. Sometimes I take a photo as a starting point. The watercolor result will never be the same image, but something completely different. The reference image is used for composition, light and shadow effects. And, importantly, this photo is in black and white so as not to get carried away by its colors. Everything comes out of a painted emotion. My paintings are actually painted feelings. Through my rich imagination and creativity, I create watercolors that are unique. It is also particularly daring to experiment, to let go and relax. Ada 29Liliane Goossens
