Rainbow Blast by Carol Carter
American artist Carol Carter works in commonplace watercolor, but her paintings look very unusual. Carol does not use a white background, a large amount of “air” and other standard techniques of watercolorists. Her work is juicy, vibrant, almost “electric”.
Carter’s main trick is to transmit the sun’s rays directly into the viewer’s eyes. And really, when you look at her paintings you just want to squint. These works make a double impression: all the objects on them are at rest, but at the same time they seem to boil from the inside, as if they are now going to shatter into small pieces with colorful fireworks. Carol says that during work she is carried away into some other space and forgets the real world.Carter teaches painting at courses around the world; numerous museums and exhibition halls welcome her work. It always works only with the highest quality materials: it is cotton-based paper and expensive pigments. Carol works in her own studio, and has not written from nature for a long time. But the result of this does not get worse, because her work is to fix the most vivid impressions and fantasies that swept through the brain and are caught by a thin tail with dexterous fingers. And the presentation is such that it is breathtaking!
Carol Carter’s creative tips are: “Use plenty of water, keep the tool and materials clean, write on the plane, let the watercolor remain watercolor and paint every day. Use pure color! ”
