Today’s WOW! is irrefutable proof about how artist Elinor Carbone not only masters watercolor techniques but feels passionate about it. As Ellie says:
“Watercolor painting and art in general offers me many rewards and I paint as often as possible. Watercolor’s exciting qualities – its freshness, immediacy, and spontaneity – are what also makes it the most challenging painting medium.”Elinor Carbone
One of her pieces was recently selected, among thousands of applicants, by L.L.Bean to be exhibited in their Freeport, ME location
Born in Munich, Germany, Elinor Carbone is a gifted and recognized watercolorist. Even though her professional background is that of an illustrator, she has been developing her watercolor techniques over the past 27 years. She has studied with famous masters of watercolor such as John Pike, Ron Ransom, Judie Wagner, Tony VanHasselt, and Tony Couch and has participated in many art shows.
Her work has been exhibited mostly in central New York, where she has participated in exhibitions at the Skaneateles Art Festival, the Everson Museum, and the Parish Art Festival. Her painting “On My Own Time” was awarded Best of Show for watercolor at the SUNY Health Science Center in Syracuse, New York.
