Betty Carr

Energetic, brightly colored watercolor still lifes, as well as oil landscapes, are the signature work of this artist who is known for her skillful use of light, color and shadow in her paintings. On the influence of light on her work, she writes – ‘What catches my eye is the effect light has on form in unique situations whether fleeting, spilling over, striking, etc. I challenge myself in capturing its dramatic and/or subtle effects. The spontaneous qualities of watercolor lends itself perfectly to my impressionistic style of painting. I strive for confident enthusiastic brushwork, the maximizing of color’s value and intensity range and a fresh painterly approach, the result appearing effortless.’
