Carol Mountford, artist with Wychwood Art. Carol has a background in interior design and started painting 30 years
ago, using watercolour. She is self taught and her style is loose and free
flowing with lots of colour and vitality. Over the years she has won
prizes in local exhibitions and has been featured in Artist and Illustrator
and International Artist magazines. She has sold through a fine art
publisher and had limited edition prints taken from her work, she has
also had cards made from her paintings.
She has now progressed to mixed media on canvas, but will still be
painting with watercolour and gouache. She loves the freedom and
looseness you can achieve with the flow of watercolour. She enjoys
using large canvases for mixed media and cityscapes are her favourite
subjects especially New York, London and Venice and she tries to
capture the atmosphere of each subject with colour, and the excitement
of contrasting light against dark, and sometimes collage.
Recently she has also painted coastal scenes, enjoying showing the
atmospheric and stormy side of harbours and beaches. To discuss any works by artist Carol Mountford please contact Deborah@wychwoodart.com or call 07799 535 765 / 01869 338 155.
