Karin Kneffel’s watercolours are not at all the watery flows of fluid colour one comes to expect (in fact, it is her oils that display more of a watery effect). Instead Kneffel sketches in pencil then covers the sketch in many layer of concentrated colour, upon dry paper. The handmade paper that the artist uses accounts for much of the texture present in her paintings. Some themes, like the lush interiors, are those also covered in her oils, but what are quite appealing are the watercolours that le the viewer in on group dynamics or individuals deep in thought or action.
