tangled up in violets

working my way back towards blue...



Hi Joel, This latest watercolour work “Tangled up in Violets” is gorgeous. In fact it has quite the opposite effect - Una tranquilita` e serenita` - a tranquillity and serenity in those beautiful washes leaving me with sense of peace and not a tangle in sight!! Not to mention those reflections!!! WOW you are great at these.
I’m glad I stopped by – what I would’ve missed. This is the kind of inspiration I am needing at the moment. To look at beautiful watercolours such as what you have painted here.
Peace be with you.

am also so very glad you stopped by "cara mia". :)

well, i am trying to follow on the "passage tranquille" series - because i like painting them and people love them so.

every time i show a collection online people are drawn to these blue studies.

maybe i should adopt an all new Italian naming scheme instead of French?

this title came because as i was doing the trickiest and most rewarding washes, Dylan was singing "Tangled Up in Blue". he pops around occasionally to sing.

i am guilty of almost NEVER repeating - or developing a theme. so - i have decided to change that. that is why i am doing a few of these.

thanks ever so much for commenting. after i finish paying the bills - i am going to catch up on my favorite blogs also.
