Soothing, refreshing and silky waters are in order for Silly Saturday. These beautiful tropical colors of cobalt teal, aztec gold and a lovely shallows green complement each other delightfully. I wish I were there!
Well, I am there, in spirit.
Today’s image really isn’t as silly as…. Yesterday’s images; especially that wild, eye popping electric purple flower on a stalk!
But, I’m guessing that with the return of the lovely cobalt teal blue…. everyone will enjoy its soothing nature so much more!
Soothing Silky Tropical Sea Colors
Some quick notes about the painting.
Its a watercolor painting, created from a memory of the Great Barrier Reef area, Magnetic Island. On a balmy, quite pleasant… not Hot, holiday we enjoyed a lovely trip and splashed around in the warm waters and soft white sand.
The color temperature of this painting is Cool dominant. ie a very pleasant, refreshing feeling for the viewer.
Mood of the Painting
The colors are a bit fun and funky, in keeping with yesterday’s post I wanted some continuity kept going. Cobalt Teal Blue, of course plays a major role in this image.
Lines and Edges
There are no hard, sharp lines. My lines are subtle, they’re ‘inferred.’
The Edges used here are the tricky ones.
The ‘in between’ ones that are challenging, yes; but beautiful bridges for the eyes.
