I have just received these beautiful and vibrant watercolor sketches done by a fantastic watercolor artist, Carol Carter. She did these as preliminary sketches for a commission which was called "How Sweet the Sound". I have always loved the sound of and harmonies of a black gospel choir, so when I saw these on Carol's blog, I contacted her right away to see if they were available to purchase. We worked out an arrangement, and now I am the proud owner of these lovely paintings.
Carol is the only watercolor artist I have come across who deliberately uses backruns or blooms in her paintings. She is masterful in her use of color - and her swimmers are truly amazing. One day, I hope to own one of her larger pieces, but for now, these are a wonderful start.
