Seitz specializes in the watercolor medium using archival papers for her paintings of land, sea, structures and people. Beginning with wet in wet washes of pure transparent color she becomes less transparent with thicker, opaque color to achieve a value range that satisfies her need for dynamic composition. She is drawn to nature, agriculture, and the relationship between man and the land with focus on the vibrant, luminous colors and the dynamic compositions available in nature.
