For the past five plus years, Portland-based artist Elizabeth Haidle has attended figure drawing sessions and honed her illustration skills. Party of One gathers together a medley of her most dazzling watercolor creations from this period. Delightful to look at, these lushly painted drawings also uncover the nuances of expression and gesture and evoke the personalities behind the poses. In addition to the gorgeous art, this collection offers insights into the creative process. Each tableaux of painted figures is accompanied by commentary from the artist herself -- fresh, philosophical, funny, thought provoking, and brief -- like the musings of David Shrigley.
