A change of tactic

Winter Fields 1, watercolor 26 x 18 cm
Winter Fields 2, watercolor 26 x 18 cm
It occurred to me that maybe Winter would be more inclined to bow and leave the stage if I showed some respect. So, "Dear Winter, your performance this year was so exceptional, you managed to impress even the most indifferent observers! I admit that the snow-covered fields do have their charm."
These are two scenes from a little area on my daily commute to work that still resists the building sprawl.

Now you have honoured winter by painting it's lovely colours, I am sure he will leave so that the colours of Spring will come your way

Very beautiful winter scenes with beautiful washes, Blaga! The blue shadows are delicious!
We had a very soft winter, almost no winter at all. Today the temperature even reached 20 degrees C, it is definitely spring here. I wish your spring will come soon!

Estas acuarelas con nieve tienen un gran encanto, son muy sutiles los colores y los paisajes trasmiten tranquilidad y silencio, me gustan

Snow is beautiful to paint, and your watercolors with blue shadows are very pretty.
I hope you will soon see spring arrive. Kisses.

Snow covered fields definitely have their charm and yours are absolutely beautiful...but I can understand your getting fed up , too much of a good thing can be bad. Wish you lots of sun :-)

The snowfields have charm, and you have painted perfectly this sense of greatness white, with your brilliant watercolors!
We had many winters with snow and white fields day after day ... but this year has only snowed a lot in the mountains, luckily for me! I wish you soon spring,dear Blaga!

Blaga said...

Hi, Blaga,
I love these watercolour paintings so much that tell me an atmospher very well. I've grown up in a snowy area and know it very well. Simple and nice!
Cheers, Sadami
