Morning Stream

 Morning Stream II
watercolor sketch on paper
18 x 26 cm

I recently went plein air painting. I painted this same scene last year, about the same time of year and hour ( you can view it here).

I am hoping to catch the feeling I see of the early morning light coming from behind the trees and onto the water. It is very suggestive, hopefully one day I will manage.

I apologize for my absence from this blog. I have missed visiting your blogs and hope to be around to catch up soon!

  5. Great to see you posting something, Celia. The deep blues give this such a different feel from the first one. Nicely done!

  6. It looks lovely. And backlight is beautyful, I think so too. I use to lift the colour from the paper after it has dried to get light spots with soft edges. To get the feeling of the sun shining through the branches.

I hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start!

I started this painting last year and set it aside for a while.  I worked from a cell phone image I took while preparing breakfast.

My favorite way to eat avocado is on toast with a poached egg, I sketched it after Christmas. It keeps me full until lunch time.
