Count Down to Takeoff

    


This watercolor doesn't come close to the truth of the glorious Caribbean. The color of this sea can't be matched on the run with watercolor. The  efflorescent aquamarine doesn't come in a pan or a tube of paint. It just is as it is. I decided to try nonetheless.

    1. Thank you Helen and the same to you and yours. While Mexico is a decked out for the holidays, there is something missing: snow and slush and nippy temperatures. We'll be enjoying those things this evening.

    1. Happy Christmas to you too Roger. 2014 will be an excellent year to paint. It's written in the forecast.

  4. I really like your watercolor. YOu may have been trying to capture the color of the ocean, but I think you have painted what I think of as the FEELING of ocean and clouds. To me that tops the exact right color.
    Happy you had a marvelous time
