This painting is watercolour on paper and is the fourth in my Mornington Peninsular series.
I wish to thank Rosina Lamberti for the use of her excellent photo Captain Pelican which I used as reference for this painting.

so beautifully painted and so real…..is it time consuming to do the water Freda..must take many layers of paint..perfect painting
Thank you Linda, and Yes, it does take many layers
I thought I might do a painting for the Pelican on a boat challenge but now I’m not so sure. LOL This is a excellent work Freda.
Aw, go on Jim!
Your mastery of painting these sunny water scenes is fantastic Freda.
Thank you very much Brian
it is a pity I have not enough vocaburary to comment for your work, Freda. What i know is just “beautiful as usual”.
Your vocabulary is just fine Hidemi, and thanks for the kind comment
beautifully done, Freda
Thank you very much, Douglas
your work is simply too beautiful for words!I’m in absolute awe of your ability to paint water… Leaves me speechless :)
Hi Alissa, thank you so much for your kind comments and for the fave and the watch.hugs, Freda
The water is Perfect… let me in on your secrets…did you mask all the squiggle lines in the foreground in water first and later uncover them and layer a wash of green? I love it. HOW?
Yes, Nancy, all my waters are created using masking solution, I may use it in layers, painting a wash, then masking, then masking again and adding another wash. Sometimes I may mask as many as four times to get the effect I want.Thanks for all the faves and for adding me to your watchlist, I really appreciate this.
