Carol loves to paint in Acrylic, Watercolour, Ink Pen and Artist’s Paint. She likes to walk and observe and photograph birds and animals, which she then develops into paintings using memory sketching and photography. Carol enjoys painting the Scottish Seashore in all its moods, using colour, impasto and accidental painterly effects, using brush and the palette knives. Most of her seascapes are painted from memories, impressions and unconscious thoughts of Scottish Seashores, which are finalised and detailed at the end. Sea birds echo wind and sound within her seascapes. She also loves nature, insects and flowers so Carol is a keen gardener, her garden also becomes paintings.
