Carole Malcolm

Carole’s series of work on canvas and paper have evolved out of a continued interest in the natural landscape. She painted for years as a watercolorist before discovering liquid acrylics. The transition from watercolor to acrylic was seamless since many of the same techniques apply. She prepares her canvas with several coats of gesso with added mediums to build up a textured painting surface. After wetting the canvas, many washes of color are applied by pouring, spattering, rubbing and dry brushing as she progresses toward completion using grand washes in the beginning and ending with smaller painterly strokes.
Having recently added a palette knife to her toolbox for added texture, her work has evolved from aspiring to create realism toward focusing on a more romantic construction of simple elements. She enjoys working where not every step is planned and controlled, exploring the impression of a landscape, while inviting the viewer to share a pause in everyday things and the memories that it triggers in their own selves.
