Carole's workshops are aimed at people who want to 'loosen up' and be freer. Carole paints in such a way as to draw the viewer in, to let them decipher certain elements, and therefore, lots of detail need not be laboured over.... just a suggestion of what is there is often all that is needed, making the finished work more exciting, evocative and bold.
