Barely Above a Whisper


Here is the final version of the new swimmer watercolor.  It will develop itself into a larger watercolor one day soon.

I often do smaller paintings to work out colors, patterns, composition, and intensity before attempting larger pieces.

Gorgeous, Carol! I often show my beginner students your paintings, explaining how to play complements and pure colors against each other to make the paintings sing :)

I love your work. Did you ever do solarization in old fashion photography darkrooms? I know I dated myself, but the colors in your paintings resemble solarized prints.

Ever teach any workshops in the NC area? Hope you do in the future.

Jose... Thank you for your post. Do you paint watercolor?

Ryan, I have never done solarization in a darkroom. Many people have said that my work resembles that! Curious. BTW... I used to use a darkroom too. :))

I have never taught a workshop in NC. If you could recommend a place to hold one-- I would be happy to try to teach there! BEst.
