The Alphabet Paintings: C

we're onto C.


C .... is for Canoe

Paddling my own Canoe



I love the serene feel to this . Water in paintings can be so calm and restful.  Unless of course, you're painting a storm at sea :) 
What about you? Do you like to see paintings with calm waters in them?

  2. Wow, Pat - Your art work is getting better and better! I really like these mono-colour paintings you are doing.
    I love water in landscape paintings - Calm is my choice. It's soothing to look at and I am currently practicing painting it !

  18. yes I like calm waters, Pat, as you painted them. Lovely! But I like a beautiful storm also. Do you like the paintings of William Turner, the great english watercolorist? a great master. Have a nice week end, Pat!xx
