Rita Vaselli said...

Hello,Blaga!You have captured the beauty and the sweetness of being at sea,in your watercolors!

Isabelle said...

j'aime particulièrement la premiere pour la presence humaine mais les deux sont magnifique

Judy said...

I love them both, for the fascinating colors of the sea!

Tito said...

I like very much how you have painted the sea in these two paintings : beautiful colors and perfect movement. Have a good week end, Blaga!

Jane said...

Lovely summer mood here, your colors are so clear and bright, really happy paintings. xx

How beautiful!!! I'm fascinated by the colours of the sea and your mastery in portraying the waves in both these watercolours.

Blaga said...

Lynn, I'm so flattered by your comment :) I'm really glad you like these paintings.

Thank you, Rita! The sea is really so inspiring!

Thank you, Isabelle! I actually quite struggled with these particular figures. They were gaining weight with every attempt to fix them. But in the end somehow they came to life :)

Judy, Tito, Jane, Lucia, thank you all for your really nice comments! The colors of the sea were truly fascinating, and I did not exaggerate them at all in the two paintings. And i still want to paint these blue and green washes...

The color of the wet sand and of the water is really well seen. Good job on these two paintings.

Ciao Blaga, we are waiting for spring and you are already in summer!
I need sun and see and your paint give me the emotion of warm and water.
Beatiful paint for the atmosphere and colours!
Ciao, abbracci, Floriana

I like very much the way you can use the paper when creating the white spots on the water. Wish I could do that too <3

Those sea colors are stunning. Is it pthalo blue? They are lovely and transparent and you have captured the white caps on the waves in such a natural way.

Lydie, Floriana, Cathy, Pierre, Elvi, Annilux, Jean, thank you all for your comments!
Jean, the blue I used is Prussian blue, it is similar in shade to phtalo, but has even deeper dark tones.
