Carol Hama Chang
Carol is known for her spontaneous, realistic, impressionistic style in both watercolours and oils. She believes that to aquire that fresh, clean, natural look the image must be painted in a direct and bold way. Very often the camera does not report all the nuances seen by the human eye, but are clearly visable in her images. Carol's watercolours are mainly negatively painted over wet-in-wet while her oils are impressionistic and painted alla prima.
