Watermedia Painter

Carol PetersonCarol has painted off and on for the last 35 years. After retiring in 2001 from South Plains College where she taught Computer Information Systems, she started painting fulltime.  Lately, she has spent many hours enjoying her  converted studio. She has placed in many regional shows and has received "Best of Show" in ten of them.  She is a signature member of the Texas Watercolor Society, the New Mexico Watercolor Society, the Southwestern Watercolor Society, and the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies.

Carol enjoys painting landscapes and flowers in watercolor and lately has painted numerous commissioned  portraits of animals and people, as well.  Most of her paintings are in watercolor on traditional watercolor paper or, more recently, on gessoed surfaces, collaged surfaces, or with acrylic or water soluble oil.  

Carol loves to observe and paint the feel of a person, often putting their personality into the colors and brushstrokes she uses.  For instance, she finds that small children are best painted with light watercolor washes on traditional watercolor paper, whereas, older men lend themselves to a heavier treatment with dark watercolor on a gessoed or collaged surface.

Carol paints with other artists on Thursday.  She has learned an immense amount from her fellow artists, the nicest people around.
