The watercolor portraits of Carol McSweeney, which she describes as “carefully and sometimes deceptively loose,” convey the artist’s fascination with the human spirit and the unique beauty she observes in people. McSweeney is passionate about getting to know her subjects. “It’s educational for me to meet and hear about their lives and then create a piece that I hope will express what they’ve shared with me,” she says.
See more of McSweeney’s heartfelt painterly portraits in the August 2016 issue of Watercolor Artist, available at northlightshop.com in print and as a download, and on newsstands June 14.
