With my oil paintings I like to get across whole concepts,
but with watercolor I crave for some Specific details. (Fri Hunt)
1) This tower in Balboa Park (San Diego) has beautiful details in Mexican building style with tiles. The big arches for the staircase and bell fry could count as door openings,
but have a regular door more below.
Can you see the stairs through the Arch? In Dutch we have a specific word for that –
a LOOK THROUGH:):)

2) HAPPINESS IS … whenever I go out for the day, to have a 6 x 9 inch sketchbook in my purse, and a tiny field palette to start a watercolor. The secret to a good watercolor is to have a plan beforehand, so the lines and colors give a CLEAN impression

3) In the process of finishing this watercolor, also discovered the beautiful details of the window of this Quadrangle building (the top of this building is in the first image, next to the tower)

5) Thursday Door and Reflection. Had to compromise here. When adding light (PS), the reflections were barely visible. But since the door has the same design as on the top, I chose to darken this view.

6) A speaker who grew up in Canada recalled in his speech palms making such an impression on his grand mother of “his only wish in life” wanting to see palm trees, that she took him to a nursery. Now, in his thirties he finally saw palm trees in the landscape in California.
His story reminded me that when we live somewhere after a while, we take the landscape so for granted, that I took a few shots of palm trees.
In Holland , my country of origin, they only can grow indoors!
