  1. Lovely, Marina. Your details are like mini works of art embedded in larger works of art!! : )

    Mercy, mercy.

    Every time I visit here, I see colour removed of labour. That is, you lay it down and art follows as its nature demands.

    There seems to be no labour to what you produce (forgive me), only inspired art, beauty, originality.

    Sigh… to be YOU! 🙂 I really, really love those colours, the pastel of it – but more than that, it’s how you lay it out. Just beautiful, Marina.

    • Noeleen, if I ever wanted to compliment an artist, I doubt if I’d find better words to express it!!! Your presence here makes me very happy! Thank you so much!
      🙂

    Watercolors do require a certain amount of controlled timeing & you do have colorific control, most apparently…

    hello Marina, thanks for following. I love your watercolours, I like the way you control the medium, so easy to let watercolour be the boss.

    • So very true! Watercolor does tend to be bossy, but then …it doesn’t know with what stubborn handler it’s dealing with!! 😆
      Thank you very much, Tony!
      I was glad Gilly introduced you!
      🙂

    Kinda describes me some days…. roiling on top but calm below…. ah!

  9. WordsFallFromMyEyes says:

    Marina, you never never cease to amaze me with what beauty you construct from somewhere within. Just lovely – again.

  10. Lovely job, as always, Marina – really a pleasure to view the details!

  11. sriramjanak says:

    lovely flow of colors…today is the festival of colors in India !!..:-)

  12. Fergiemoto says:

    Oh, Marina, that is just beautiful!
    Sunrise or sunset…either way it’s splendid and rejuvenating! 🙂

  13. Beautiful blending of colors, Marina.

  14. fgassette says:

    I love the flow and colors of your design. Reminds me of summer and going to the snow cone shop having a taste of many flavors of syrup over ice cone.

    BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!

  15. Very pretty, but I wait the app 😉
    Good morning Marina

  16. frizztext says:

    some sunrise impressions!

  17. aFrankAngle says:

    Love the colors, but I think your use of white is what makes this one. By the way … it reminds me of water flowing away from me.

  18. violetski says:

    Brilliant Marina!
    Love colors! So fresh and warm❤

  19. Love them Marina – so vibrant!

  20. Meanderer says:

    Very pretty layers and blends of colours. I like these very much. The bottom image reminds me of gulls flying in a colourful sky!

  21. IlsePhilips says:

    Wow, you are amazing with watercolors. Once upon a time, a long long time ago, I also tried to paint with watercolors. It didn’t work…..it looked like a painting from a baby ;-(

  22. Dilip says:

    The colors are gorgeous! Today we celebrate the festival of colors in India – Happy Holi 🙂

  23. These are quite a departure from the sketches you’ve been showing us. Very lovely work.

  24. viveka says:

    I love the way you have done close up on your painting … stunning – the art in itself is fantastic. Stunning with the blue, yellow … with the red.

  25. mobius faith says:

    Brilliant series of detail edits Marina. Beautiful. Your work always amazes me. And the fact that you can take a larger work and edit it down to several smaller interesting successful abstracts shows the overall talent for quality work that you exhibit.

  26. Madhu says:

    Beautiful! The crimson/gold tones on the vivid blue are so dramatic.

  27. nannus says:

    What I find interesting in the close ups is that the smaller the scale, the more you see the result of uncontrolled random processes, like the paint being sucked into the paper by capillary forces, while the designed component is reducing. On the large scale, on the other hand, the design is dominating. In between there is a scale dominated by your style, that is the way you have learned to see and move “automatically”, still your action but not planned. So there is a conscious component, an unconscious component and a physical component, each dominating their respective scale.

  28. Deb says:

    These colors are gorgeous, Marina. The look of rippling water…makes me think of a summer day at the beach.
    Have a great day and evening, my friend!

    • Oh, Deb, it is exactly that and I’m so glad you like it! A summer sunset “rippling” the water. Thank you, my dear and you too have a great day and Tuesday evening. xxxxxxx

  29. deCamville Design says:

    Oh, Marina, these colors are so gorgeous! I am speechless and so very moved by this piece! It’s a most beautiful color palette, and the way they blend into each other, it’s just stunning! I can’t stop staring!!! ~xoxoxo!!!

  30. SpirAnima says:

    Wonderful!!!!!
    Dear Marina!
    These colors is beautyfull!!!!!
    One kiss for you sweet Artist Woman

    Great use of wash and layering. Your details could be paintings all by themselves. The first could be land and sky. Detail one always makes me wonder how you can get such sharp edges. Can I come over there and spend a day with you as my water color mentor? In details 2 and 3 I love your use of the paper as negative space (?). Clouds in the sky?(detail 2) Snow covered islands? (detail 3) Ripples and highlights in the water! (the whole painting)

    • Watercolor mentor, me?!!!!!! 🙂 For some strange reason I cannot operate when someone’s watching!!
      I’m overwhelmed by your description! I think “ripples” could have been the title of this one, you’re right.
      Thank you so much, Russ for your beautiful comment.
      🙂

  32. Penny L Howe says:

    Loving this Marina. And I’ll bet you know me well enough to feel what I’m thinking my dear friend.
    the overflowing gentle blending of colors, it’s quite seductive. Wonderful. I keep scrolling up to look again and again! Have a most excellent evening and tomorrow! Much love, Penny xoxoxo

    • I think I do, yes, as I think you do too, to know how much this means to me! Thank you so much, Penny! A wonderful evening to you too, my dear and a colorful tomorrow! 🙂 xxxxx
