Sunshiny Days – Colourful Paintings

A Colourful Mediterranean Coastal Scene in Watercolour

Colourful watercolour sketch of a harbour and a castle on the  Mediterranean coast .

This is my latest – a fairly quick watercolour sketch of a harbour scene. I was so fed up of all the dark , damp days we were having that I chose something light and sunny to paint. It really worked ! My mood lifted straight away and , as an added bonus, everyone else who looked at it cheered up too . I don’t know about you , but what I work on always affects my emotions. Art Therapy, anyone ?

Sunshiny Day

This acrylic painting is another one I painted to brighten up dark November days . But this was put together in a completely different way from the harbour scene which is carefully detailed . Sunshiny Day was painted quite instinctively – I really had no idea before I started and it evolved gradually. It was a surprise to me , but I liked it ! I must say , I don’t often produce work this way – but I feel a series coming on. Are there any more Abstract Expressionists out there? ( I added the words afterwards to make it into a poster for my current exhibition – see previous post for details. )

You can find this abstract painting with a few more in my gallery , just click on Gallery for the drop down menu to select the Abstract section .

    1. Thanks for that, G .It is indeed Corsica , from a photo – I’ve never been . I painted the ‘ orange ‘ one to cheer me up and it seems to have that effect on other people too, which is great.

Let me know what you think !
