The Stable Block, Rowallane - watercolour, 32cm x 39cm
Caroline Stevenson is a watercolour artist, who was born and bred in Belfast. Her study of modern languages took her to Germany for 13 years to teach English at a Teacher Training College, and from there to the United States and finally home to Northern Ireland to teach both French and German. Two of Caroline’s aunts were proficient artists, who motivated her to dabble in art throughout her teaching career and to take it to a more serious level following early retirement. Under the excellent tutelage of watercolour artist Graham Booth, she has developed her own style and spends many happy hours painting watercolours for family and friends, and to sell at local exhibitions. She specialises in depicting local scenes in addition to villages and buildings unique to her former home in Upstate New York. Caroline loves the versatility of watercolour, the ability to layer washes, to create blurry effects with lost and found edges, and to produce a subtle interplay of light and dark. She hopes that she succeeds in conveying a specific atmosphere and identification with the subject matter in her work.
