This week at Brush-Paper-Water...

Pescados, 22" x 30"

Carol Carter

It's been some years since I first saw one of Carol Carter's paintings, but I still remember vividly the almost otherworldly color of a swimmer floating at the edge of a pool. While I am often vague about names, I usually remember images forever, so when I discovered Carol's work online in the past couple of years, there was no doubt in my mind that I'd found the same artist. In combination with a palette of golds, acid-greens, intense orangey-reds, and deep turquoises and ultramarine blues, her manipulation of watercolor "blooms" to shape and define forms produces very distinctive, exotic, and visually exciting paintings.

Please check out
