About "Eclectic Journeys"
2020 has been a tough year, probably the toughest for my generation and as an artist I still prefer to believe that life will change for better. The simplest joys of life need to be reminded and practiced everyday. Easy to say, hard to practice but through painting and drawing I perceive subtle moments of joy on every day life. Like an observer I see people around me and try to capture the joy in these instants that soon are swallowed by routine.
Mila Renault is a joyful Brazilian artist based in Hamilton with her family. She received a formal education in watercolour and classical drawing at school and went on to study Architecture and Urban Design. Mila taught watercolour at the University whilst studying Architecture and Urban Design.
Her architectural background has influenced her watercolours and she has a great eye for composition and perspective. 'Watercolour is a fascintating medium that can capture the mood and atmosphere of a scene through energetic line work and the use of bold colours' says Mila.
As a representational artist, Mila is not concerned about capturing realism but rather strives to create a feeling and connect emotionally with her subjectmatter.
