This relationship is solid. Color harmony is important to me but values are also important.  The red of the background relates to the red in his shirt.  The black of the hat relates to the dog.  Blue and orange are complimentary colors.  Modeling paste was use to create texture in the background with overlaid reds brushed on.

Getting to Know Carolyn

Carolyn’s subjects are inspired by everyday working people. Her aesthetic straddles the line between modern and folk, utilizing warm tones and simplified forms. The subjects in Carolyn’s paintings each tell a story. “When painting my characters I feel as though I have known them,” she says. After years of working in a banking environment, Carolyn is pleased to have transitioned to a more creative lifestyle. She now shares a studio with her husband, a fellow UGallery artist, and enjoys exercising her imagination and creativity.
