Carol Swinney

Casper, WY and Tucson, AZ

Wyoming native Carol Swinney paints primarily on location, preferring such places as the Rocky Mountains of Montana and Colorado, the mountains of Arizona or the vast Wyoming landscape.  She paints with a palette knife instead of a brush, not only for the heavy paint textures, crisp, clean colors and uniqueness of the tool, but for the depth that is created in her landscapes.  Many of her works are painted on site, capturing the interesting compositions utilizing the dramatic lighting of the mornings and evenings with rich warm colors contrasted with cool long shadows.
