I found some time the other evening to splash with some Cobalt Teal and Prussian Blue, Yellow Ochre and Burnt Umber, Quinacridone Gold and Green Gold watercolor to try to recreate the wonderful feeling of being on our recent little “rum-away” to Punta Cana.
“Landscapes” are a challenge to me. After a couple of attempts at this first one, I decided to just splash these colors into an abstract.
I then tried turning my 10×14 portrait page to landscape and creating a scene with a few trees recalling how we discussed how amazing that some of them were still alive bending and swaying in the breeze. There was one like the one below right in front of “our spot on the beach” where lots of people stopped to lean on and pose for photos.
All of these paintings were done on 10 x 14″ sheets of Arches 300 lb cold pressed watercolor paper.
Hoping they help you to “feel” the ocean breeze!
Cheers & Hugs,
