Painting in watercolor or oil, Elizabeth Greaf seeks to find the essence that draws her to the subject. She looks for scenes in nature and architecture that capture the viewers' interest and draw them in to the subject. Her representational style seeks to restate the scene in a painterly manner, stressing the light, color, movement, uniqueness rather than simply copying it for memory. She wants her collectors to be drawn to linger with the scene as if they were viewing it and reluctant to turn their back to move on. She particularly hopes that her Williamsburg paintings give that experience to people who love the town as much as she does.
