"I paint from life, directly onto the canvas, aiming to put down the tone of the tone, the colour of the colour and the shape of the shape, trying to see the whole and painting all parts equally. It is really about painting what I see and not what I think I see!"
Suffolk & East Anglian Paintings
Caroline paints her Suffolk landscapes direct from observation in (almost) all weather conditions.
She paints "en plein air" along coast near Bawdsey capturing the sea, sky, buildings, trees, sea kale, vegetation and groynes along the coast.
"I spend a lot of time in Suffolk painting the coast around Bawdsey, many of my paintings witness the erosion and constant movement of the beautiful landmarks and landscapes which are rapidly disappearing and constantly changing."
Zanzibar Landscape Paintings
Caroline captures the very strong magical light along the coast of Zanzibar in Africa. The Indian Ocean , the African people, boats and palm trees particularly draw her attention.
"When the sun shines, the light of Zanzibar is magical and the palm trees are magnificent."
Caroline's paintings of Adalucia in Spain offer a complete contrast to the wetlands of Suffolk. Her paintings convey the intense heat and wild nature of the Spanish landscape and traditional buildings nestling in the surrounding mountains.
"I am very happy when I am alone in the landscape of Andalucia where I am surrounded by the beauty and peace of nature."
