Light on the path

This is a country bicycle path, where we cycled on the weekend. Apparently, it was the light that captured my imagination in this view.

Bougainvillea

Bougainvillea, watercolor 40 x 30 cm
It took me many attempts to find a way to paint this beautiful plant in a not too concrete style. It is not an easy one to simplify.
Bougainvillea makes me think of the white-washed Mediterranean villages. It spells warmth, serenity and beauty all in one. So, I could not resist the temptation to buy a small potted plant this spring, knowing all too well that it cannot survive the Canadian winter. Will it tolerate the air in the house? Remains to be seen...
