Arrecife, Lanzarote, Watercolour, 15" x 11"
A possible candidate for a YouTube video where I loved the reflections in the scene and the glassy appearance of the surface of the water. This is a small sheltered, tidal lake in the middle of the main town/city on the island. Tricky having to deal with the background buildings - they are painted white but not 'white' in appearance.
Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.

Canadian forest scene - something different for me!

Canada, 15" x 11"
A painting from a recent one to one workshop I did online. Something new for me as I don't normally do lakes, fir trees, but this was a nice challenge and I might end up doing more of these when I tire of boats/street scenes - you never know where art takes you in a virtual way. What attracted me to the source photo was the fact it had a bit of everything - foreground, middle and background interest and lovely stillish reflections in the lake. I popped in the small boat as an afterthought - I think it needed something out there on the left as a focal point and the floating log almost pointing to it.
