Winter vacation

I am so excited. This is where I'm going. Well, not exactly here as this photo was taken from Aruba. But I am going to the Caribbean on a cruise that will take me to 5 other islands. But this photo from the brochure, had such lovely water and sky colors and I wanted to see if I could reproduce them. Here in landlocked Alberta I don't get much of a chance to paint the sea or use this combination of blues and greens. This is just a quick sketch, I don't do a lot of landscapes and the perspective is a bit wonky, I think. It's all about the colors!

For the next 11 days, I will be flying and cruising, and exploring other cultures and ways of life. See ya when I get back!

Watercolor paint on 140 paper.

Ah - the color of the water is enough to relax me even here in the gray weather. Have a wonderful time!
