Spoilt for Choice

I am very fortunate to live in a beautiful South Australian town where the Murray river passes my door and flows into the sea. My current muse of experimenting more with "Scapes" means that I am spoilt for choice as I have the river, sea, hills and vines on my doorstep. I have not painted flat or graduated washes for I don't know how long but painting clear skies has made me revisit this watercolour application.

  3. Beautiful gradated washes and I love the vibrant colors of the upper painting. The seaside is serene, I can feel it all the way over here!
