Eliza Hafer

Over many years, Eliza has explored traditional as well as experimental techniques. Working in acrylics, she presents two different styles here.

“I lived in the US for most of my life. Approaching retirement from working as a massage therapist,  I moved to Ecuador. After several years, while painting a series of sea animals, I decided to move to the Algarve in 2016.

I love the luminosity of watercolor. So after switching to acrylics, I continued to paint with transparent pigments. The gradual process of layering, slowly enriching the color, is very satisfying. In recent years, I’ve introduced more opaque paint as a contrast.

I’ve worked in several different styles of drawing and painting over the past 50 years. There are a few of my mixed media paintings included in the gallery below.”
