Somewhere in Greece


I know the perspective is off and I can't seem to remember where this is, but I do know it was somewhere in Greece, on one of the islands. I was just playing around with a limited palette of Daniel Smith watercolors. Who says mountains can't be blue,water shades of yellow, and trees purple. I rarely just play when I paint and after I realized the perspective was off, I just went for it. Next I'll use a ruler!

Interesting, and I love the colors. You're allowed to use your own colors and sense of perspective in your artwork, and it's too much work to lug out a ruler and put it to use.

I've always loved wonky perspective! I think it emphasises the emotional/perceptive aspect of a piece of work. I really like this, great colours!

Hi Jenny and Deb...thanks for looking...I found when I quieted the inner critic, my paintings seem to be more pleasing to me. As I've said before...I just love Daniel Smith watercolors and my Lama Li paper.

I love the askew perspective - leave your ruler at home! :-)
