About Carol C. Young

Carol C. Young is a CT based artist who has gained recognition for her bold landscape paintings. Her use of contrasting colors capture the light and shadow of architectural structures within the rural landscape. Carol is intrigued by older buildings, and has been identified with her depictions of barns. In the artist's words, "There is something nostalgic about an old barn or cottage that draws me in and I hope to capture them on canvas before the ever changing landscape changes again forever."

Hi Carol! Just stopping by to say hello, and to thank you for your kind 'like' on my pear print. It's much appreciated! I absolutely adore the colors in your landscape paintings; so bold and bright, which is what I love :) They actually remind me of a couple of landscape paintings I've done in the past using oil pastel. Anyways, best of luck to you in the challenge!

Hi Carol, I really enjoy your work! Your palette choices are awesome and I love your loose style. What is your medium and substrate? I can't tell from the pictures or descriptions.
