Maltese Fishing Boats

Maltese Fishing Boats, watercolor 54 x 32 cm (n/a)

Maltese Fishing Boat, watercolor 22 x 30 cm
I passed through the fishing village of Marsaxlokk on the east shore of Malta, during a sightseeing bus tour this spring. I was quite disappointed that we were not allowed to get off the buss and all my photos of these picturesque boats have an added blue haze from the bus window. This is where painting comes handy - I could enhance the colors and change the scene as I like it :)

Blaga said...

Wow, thank you so much everybody for these very nice comments! I am glad you like this serene and picturesque scene. I have been so bad lately, neglecting both commenting and posting, that this immediate feedback makes me feel even more guilty. I have to try to change the ratio of work vs painting and blogging back to its happy balance.

Splendidi acquerelli, Blaga. Le barche non sono mai facili da dipingere, le tue oltre ad avere dei colori magnifici sono perfette! Un abbraccio.
