I have also lived in the beautiful countryside, from the gorgeous Cotswolds to a pretty fishing village in Cornwall.
And now on Exmoor's National Park, with its amazing nature and wildlife.

It has beautiful ancient woodlands, rare plants and flowers, trees of oak, beech, ash and sycamore hazel.
Medieval bridges, quick flowing rivers, that are just steps away from me, river banks and verges that have hidden places for pretty wild plants.

The open moorland with herds of little exmoor ponies, who look up to greet you, and then run off, once you make any indication to approach them.
Grazing black faced sheep with their heads down busily eating, while the buzzards are circling up in the sky.
The gorgeous coast, is not but a short drive away, with its wonderful sea views, and beaches full of treasure troves......all this for me to find, love and paint!

Wildlife on Exmoor
Carole works mainly with the pure natural pigments of watercolour.
Applying delicate iridescent washes that build up beautifully.
She adds more washes to get detail until she gets the required effect she's after,

She also loves mixed media, by adding textures in the form of a 3D effect of decoupage with gold and silver leaf and Iridescent metallic washes.
This adds amazing magical qualities, to her work, making her artwork unique and special to her!
