Fred Carvell is a colorist who creates contemporary semi-abstract images of the land inspired by scenes he finds in the central California coast near Carmel and in the Mediterranean countries of France, Italy, Portugal and Greece.
Using acrylic paint on acid free paper or canvas, he melds bright primary colors with luminous earth tones to create warm and harmonious landscapes or more abstract images drawn from scenes found in nature. His works range in size from small (8”x8”) to large (48”x60”). Most paintings fall into the smaller sizes.
He now lives in Carmel Valley with his wife where he paints daily.
