watercolour watercolor spain old lady arches light shade
Wow….I really like the mood of this one. I also like the perspective & all those reflections. This lady didn’t have time to stand around & talk like the others in the background – she was probably in a hurry to get home to make Sunday dinner! :)
Thanks Marsha. It was the perspective and those reflections in the floor that grabbed me. I don’t know if the old girl has an umbrella against the rain or to shade herself from the sun?
I thought it was one of the Bastide towns in France. Agree with Marsha great perspective. Thank you for sharing your colours, they always intrigue me.
Thanks Val. I’m a bit staid in my same old colour choices!
Cool! Loved all those reflections
Thanks Carolyn. I’m pleased with the reflections too. They were such an integral part of the painting.
This is very touching, Ian.Beautifully done.
Wow Ian, a really great watercolour….. great perspective, wonderful reflections and super job bringing the viewer into the work with the excellent use of contrast. Just an all-round fine work of art.
That’s good of you to say Jim. I’m pleased with the way this turned out.
As ever mate great delicate touch, fine detail and the contrasts, shadows etc brilliant. :-))

Thanks Annette. I’m very pleased to be honoured in the group which celebrates my medium!
This painting is so real that it reminds me of my Swedish grandma who really Wanted to go to her Lutheran Church of choice, but at that time, her only way to attend Church was to be taken by my Catholic Aunt to Mass! Thanks for a Beautiful painting-by Hand, Ian!
Thank you Jacquelynn…at least she got to worship somewhere!
