Venice In Watercolour
On my Easel waiting to be completed
I know everyone is expecting me to be sharing robins or even cockerel paintings at the moment but right now I am working on huge landscapes. The above painting is a smaller version of a large piece that has captured my heart today. I am in love with the Cerulean Blue pigment of the upper part of the architecture whilst a mixture of pinks give a warm glow to the facade. I am trying to avoid too much in the way of tiny detail in too many sections. Mainly as I do not want to lose the spontaneity of the piece. Spontaneity which I could easily miss out on if I used a preliminary sketch!
There is so much life in this and a feeling of energy which is amazing considering I am working on a building. And so after working on the floor with this painting, I placed it on my easel to photograph and I now cannot wait until tomorrow to continue with this theme.
Whatever you are doing today I hope it makes you feel as happy as I do right now.
I heard "Atmospheric Watercolours" , my latest book is to be published in Italian next year so I am thrilled!
