Memories from past vacations

Near Monterey, California


Tulum, Mexico
I felt like painting seascapes today, so I picked two old vacation photos. I used only three colors for both - alizarin crimson, prussian blue and indian yellow. They seem like a great trio for landscapes.

These are fabulous. And that too from such a limited palette !!!

Thank you, Carlos and Jane, so kind of you to leave a comment! I find that the limited palette (surprisingly) makes painting faster and at this stage lets me learn a lot about colors.

Wonderful! And that with a palette of only three colors - great.

I love your work - the light, the colors and composition are wonderful --pretty impressive that you started painting only in 2009!

Blaga said...

Thank you, Brigitte!

Thank you, Meera! your words are very encouraging.

These are both lovely watercolours Blaga. Excellent washes and dry brush work, a skillful use of mixing from a limited palette and you have a style developing already - after two years that's very impressive :)
