Impressionist Watercolor Hills

impressionist watercolor landscape, outdoor painting hills, loose colorful landscapes,

One painting – 3 views.

It never ceases to delight me how with just a simple little change – a subject can be significantly altered.

A tiny miracle within my grasp. I like it.

I’ve always been rather partial to the square format.

Reference Subject was a small hillside will stubbly shrubs.

Grey greens and a creamy buff.

From which my mind’s eye made the leap to “Indigo” and “Buff Titanium” in Β Daniel Smith watercolors.

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at and,

  2. Hmm-recognizing potential and accepting reality (only in real life one can not flip the watercolor over except through image processing) to choose a more exciting format- These are creative avenues we can explore. The other part of your piece which is very creative is your wonderful use of hard (wet against dry) and soft (wet into wet) edge to describe the bushes and contours of the hill side. As always you have given me much to think about-Thank you, Debi.
