Light Through Waves

Light Through Waves
Pure Watercolour
56 cm x 42 cm or 22 inches x 16,5 inches

At last, a day to enjoy painting just for the sake of it.  I love "contra jour" I like the help it gives the artist, blocking out fiddly details and reducing things to suggestions, a flick of light can describe a whole boat, a figure becomes just a few blobs of paint.  Then, wow!  What a treat awaits within the waves, vivid colours, luminous turquoise, splashes of viridian, beautiful.

Beautiful. Used the colours very brilliantly.

I love sunlight through waves, too. It really makes an evening bellyboard session special. You've caught the light just right!

Wow, this is stunningly beautiful. Your artwork is continually evolving, growing, and even more expressive. Very inspiring.

I love this balance of light and dark elements! It is superb! It feels like those rare paintings where one is truly inspired :)
