Sidi Bou Said, Arches, 25 x 30 cm

Continuing with the Mediterranean theme... this is by a photo taken in the Tunisian arts-and-crafts village of Sidi Bou Said, located near the site of ancient Cartage.

Lovely watercolor Blaga, and it's nice to feel the sun. I see you also looking to simplify.

Blaga I just love your Mediterranean paintings , you really do them well. There is a beautiful light , it appears so sunny, and I imagine these people are tourists discovering the narrow streets. Beautiful colors too. xx

Ciao Blaga, magnifica l'atmosfera mediterranea del tuo acquerello. I colori e la luce sono superlativi! Un abbraccio.

Thank you, Judy! I also like how the people turned out. Maybe will use this approach more.

Thank you, Lydie! Yes, I have been focusing on simplifying the subjects and loosening up - not always successfully. It will be fun following each-other's progress.

Thank you, Renate! What better time for a hot sunny scene than in the middle of the winter :)

Thank you, Evelin, I am glad you like it!

Thank you, Jane! I decided to cover most of the white walls with light orangey-pink, and instead of killing the light, it seems to have intensified it.

Tante grazie, Tito! Io sono contento che ti piace questo dipinto.
