Corsica Countryside

7" x 10" Watercolor

This is my first offering for The Virtual Paintout this month. I'm forcing myself to do landscapes with buildings - I'm determined to get better at this! If you'd like to see what the actual photo looks like, click ">here. You will see that I took great artistic license with this scene!

I'm going to look around Corsica some more, and see if there's anything else that catches my eye. We're allowed to post up to 3 paintings on the Virtual Paintout Blog, so I'd like to do at least one more.

In other news, we had a heat wave today! It was up to over 56 degrees today! Folks in convertibles were driving around with the top down! Personally, I still think it's a little cool for that! But, I did get to go out this afternoon with just a sweater on. Fabulous!

Barbra, what a charming piece. I am finding the Virtual Paintout pieces very interesting. Isn't Google Maps fascinating. You did a lovely interpretation. Great colors and you captured the sense of place.

Nancy, I love the "artistic license" ability and your colors are fantastic. I also like how you wield your brush and water. I really am wishing I could be walking through this area of beauty! So pretty!

Nancy, my apologies for calling you Barbra. I was thinking about both of you at the same time! I think of you as my Florida connections.

Thanks for checking in on my blog. Keep up the great work you are doing.
