Watercolor Paintings by Carolyn Epperly

Artist’s Statement

The colors created by transparent watercolor are like faceted jewels in sunlight. This medium allows a layering of tones like veils, one over the other. without disturbing each color underneath. The effect creates memorable, haunting depth and atmosphere.

I began painting in watercolor as a means to quickly learn about color. My intention, as a graphite artist, was to move on to oil once I understood tones and value. I have never left this beautiful, unforgiving medium. It challenges me every single day.
