Happy Full Moon!
…and a beautiful sunny weekend, my friends.
I have been working on a new series titled “In Limbo”
This is the first one: Fandango.
A huge gift from my father [also a painter], a set of Talens Ecolines and W&N inks were too irresistible not to try and mix [!] with my watercolors. Unorthodox [they don’t actually mix] yet such fun! Those little ink bottles are like delicious candies! Enough said though…
In Limbo – Fandango

i keep coming back to this one, marina! its so drastically simple, but extremely pround in meaning! bravo marina…!
Ah, so happy to see you coming back to it! Thank you, my friend. I hope you are well and enjoying a wonderful June! 🙂
yet again…absolutely beautiful composition..the mark of a true artist…words cannot convey the simple yet all-encompassing effects of basic colours! yay, marina!
Yay, to making my day too [night actually, but you get it!]. Thank you, my friend, it may take me some time before I land safely after reading your comment! 😉
just love the first pic here, marina! so utterly simple, so few colours used, but it says so much! true mark of an accomplished artist! HappY Easter, by the way…i know Easter is a big celebration in Greece….kalimera!
You are TOO kind, my friend! 🙂
Thank you for your Easter wishes. Hope you enjoyed yours. Ours is this week. It is a big celebration and as this one is the opposite of Xmas, a bit more introverted, I enjoy it more! 😉
I like your artwork, thanks for your visit Marina 🙂
You are very welcome, Jean-Paul! Thank you so much! 🙂
I believe the Fandango is a joyous dance where people get giddy and clap their hands and leap about in ecstasy– which is exactly what I did when I saw “Fandango.”
Of course I do the same thing when I see any of your paintings, dear Marina! No wonder I’m always so happy and out of breath… : )
You mixed inks and watercolors?? And made it work?? Once again we see why you are consistently voted Most Unorthodox Lamb On Mt. Olympus– wool done!! : )
The Unorthodox Lamb is very happy that it made you dance! 😉
Mixing the two was actually fun. Once you get rid of the bully attitude off the inks, everything goes smoothly! Carrying a whip of course helps! 🙂
Thank you, my dear friend! 🙂
Ah, love it dear Marina! ❤️
Love colors, love how colored combine each other, love that yellow line …..
Ah, thank you so much, my dear Violet!! 🙂 xxx [to Malus too!]
Dear marina! Back again from Tuscany…
I love both Limbo’s 🙂 mood’s from different moments… water color is my best loved too!
❤ I'll finish to write and send you a souvenir to keep in touch with you with colours!
Kisses and hugs Claudine
Back already?!!!!!! I hope you had a wonderful time!
Thank you for your beautiful words! Hugs and kisses to you and all your lovely family!! 🙂 xxxxx
This is a superb use of colour. Wonderful composition Marina. 🙂
Thank you very much! I’m so glad you like it!! 🙂
Wonderful. I didn’t receive this one in my reader, so..twicely surprised today!
So am I – twice as happy to read your comments! Thank you!
Reader is acting a bit strange sometimes…
wow I love it, purple for me is a hard color, you did a good job blending it with the blue I love it and the yellow
Thank you, my dear Doris, I’m glad you liked the combination! Happy weekend! 🙂
How lovely, Marina! Your creativity is wonderful 🙂
You are so sweet, Christy! Thank you!! 🙂
I have no doubt if they give you a flat shampoo you will manage to get the bubbles out… explosion of ink.. xxx 😉
How did you know?!!!!!! 😉 Impossible is an unknown word to me! 🙂
Thank you, my dear friend! 🙂
What is ‘know’ among friends… I just have a gut feeling… beside good on you! I think we both believe in the same moto in life ❤ I also don't know impossible. well done.. Few more Marinas and our world become a better place 🙂
Awww…. Likewise, my friend!!! 🙂
🙂 good week ahead x
Good afternoon Marina
I have been away from my
WordPress for quite a
long time now, just adding
a very few posts and not
doing much visiting friends
as you are my dear, but
now that I am getting back
into posting some things
I just wanted to call by and
wish you a happy Wednesday
my lovely friend 🙂 😉
Good …evening, Andro! Happy to see you back on track! Happy Hump Day, my friend! 🙂
Thank you my sweet and dear friend
and hey have a deliciously awesome
Thursday Marina 🙂
Greetings from sunny Warsaw. Feel free to watch the new collection of photos in the album ‘Roses’
Gretings Marko. Okay, I will.
Lovely, I love the mood, gloomy and stormy to me and yet, balanced with a ray of hope, of golden light.
Ah, James, I’m so glad you see a ray of hope. Beautiful interpretation and a lovely comment. Thank you so much! 🙂
Oh, Marina, those colors!! I am glad you mixed the inks. This is stunning!! Have a fabulous week, my friend. I like your new series title. 🙂
Oh, thank you, my dear Patricia!!! So happy you like this [and my watercolor/inks mix!] and the title!
Wishing you an amazing week and all the very best finishing your gluten-free book! 🙂 xx
Marina, this is very striking in colours and appearance .. I have worked in inks before within my Auragraph paintings… but they are unforgiving if a colour should land where not intended LOL.. A beautiful piece of art and a wonderful gift from your father.
It was indeed a wonderful gift and of sentimental value as many of them were almost 30+ years old and working just as well as they did back then! They truly are unforgiving, but I don’t mind that. Sometimes a mishap can lead to a new path.
Thank you so much, my dear Sue! 🙂 xx
Beautiful art Marina – I love the color combinations. But for me it’s the soft and delicate complexities that I’m seeing, with subtle value changes. The tree trunk is fantastic.
Ah, Mary, your very talented and trained eye goes straight to the details and I am just so happy you enjoyed it! 🙂
Very nice! 😀
Thank you!! 🙂
Love the mood the second one evokes… Thank uuuu
Thank You, my dear Pink! So happy you like it! 🙂
How much fun to try a new medium – especially mixed with the watercolors.
It is, Bongo and I think you should try it too!!! Thank you and your person!! 🙂
I love it!
So happy to hear that, Rilla! Thank you! 🙂
Lovely as always, Marina! Have a great weekend.
Thank you, Richard!! You too have a beautiful weekend and Supermoon!!! 🙂
I love everything about it Marina! The colours – especially the fuschias, the yellow line delineating the two phases (worlds?) and the tree in limbo! Great title too 🙂 Look forward to more.
Oh, thank you, Madhu! Yes, two worlds… What a beautiful interpretation. I’m so happy you liked it and the title!
Have a wonderful weekend and supermoon! 🙂
I like the colors! great combo!
Thank you, Jess! Happy weekend & full moon! 🙂
Exquisite colors to celebrate the full moon. Here today is dedicated to the Guru and prayers and celebrations take place. Thrilled to know your father too is a great painter. 🙂
Thank you, my dear Dilip. Happy celebrations and …”A Lotus for you … a Buddha to be!” 🙂
[it is now stuck with me – I can’t think of a better wish!]
You never fail to surprise me Marina.
That’s a lovely compliment, my dear Gilly! Thank you so much and …congratulations! 🙂
Marian, you’ve been reading my mind! I’m playing with ink and watercolor as well:) Though your results are much better than mine. Beautiful!
No way, Elena! Seriously! i can’t imagine any result of yours not being …amazing!
But thank you! You know what they say about ‘great minds’… 😉
You paint well Marina
Ah, thank you so much for the compliment. I’m trying to improve… 🙂
All the best though I must say you are already doing so well
Thank you, my dear Aina! 🙂
Have a beautiful weekend! 🙂
That is so lovely really Marina. It’s hues are very refreshing–like a mix of Spring and Summer. Kudos!
Detail 2 is for me best in class , it is not unorthodox and created like a rainbow would like to present. Therefore this work is Greece meaning orthodox 🙂 , cheers bart
😆 what an analysis! I never really thought it unorthodox mixing them. It’s just something that is not recommended as they react differently. So I guess you are right about it being orthodox to me. Thank you so much, Bart! 🙂
Happy weekend and full moon!
Love it Marina – especially the yellow. Hope you are well – I am slowly emerging fron the World Cup torpor!
Welcome back!!!!! 😉 I am well, thank you Jim! I hope your return to the ‘living’ will be smooth and pleasant! I’m so happy you like this [and the yellow!]
Happy weekend and full moon! 🙂
Ooh, I love this. Wonderful design, and the colours are gorgeous!
Happy Full Moon. I think I read it is a Supermoon.
Oh, thank you! 🙂
It is indeed a Supermoon and it’s really spectacular. It’s at it’s peak here as I write. I hope you enjoy it too! 🙂
I love these colours the prints are amazing. Xxx
Thank you so much! 🙂 Happy weekend and full moon! 🙂
This is really stunning work, Marina. The colours are magnificent. 🙂 Happy weekend to you. xx
I’m so glad you like this, Sylvia! Thank you!! Happy Super Moon! 🙂
Splendid creativity ,the colors are delightful.Regards.Jalal
Thank you very much, dear Jalal. I’m so glad you like it. Best regards and happy weekend! 🙂
Happy weekend to you Marina.
🙂 Thank you!
Love the detail shots esp 1 and 3
Very happy to hear that! Thank you, Querida! 🙂
Ah, thank you, Eva! 🙂
Fandango cannot be in-limbo as it is the lively couples dance of Iberia. Castanets
and handclapping are calling everyone to dance to these sounds.
You have the sounds in very sweep of your brush in this painting.
Gorgeous and colorful … Happy Full moon ❤ hugs ❤
You are right, my dear Isadora, but in this case I’m using ‘fandango’ the color [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuchsia_%28color%29] which is the color above the yellow of the horizon. In limbo is the transitional place where my tree lies. I’m so happy you like it!!!
Happy Super Moon to you too and a beautiful weekend, my dear friend! 🙂 Hugs & xxxx
AAAhh … an artists mind painting and capturing words in a whole new way. I simply adore this painting. It’s my favorite now. : )
You are making me blush! Thank you, my kind Issy! 🙂 xx
Interesting to how I notice more details in the painting than first impression. A simple complexity. … thus the power of the artist.
That’s a great compliment, my dear friend! Thank you so much! Wishing you a wonderful weekend and be sure to watch Super Moon tonight! 😉
Hoping to see it bigger in the early morning!
Love those storm clouds! 🙂
Ah, thank you Russ! 🙂 Happy weekend, my friend! 🙂
That’s a lovely one!
Thank you, Rajiv! 🙂
Very Beautiful…Marina ..My talented friend..:-)
Sriram, my dear, thank you so much!!! 🙂
I too like it. I used mixed media often and sometimes have really interesting results. Fun to try new ways to combine paint. I was not sure why the series is called In Limbo.
I’d love to see them, Donna!
I’m glad you asked! I wanted to find a title which describes life [tree] in odd/unlikely places. My tree in the sea is in a way floating, in a transitional place: in limbo.
Happy weekend and happy super moon tonight! 🙂
It sounds intriguing. I wish you a happy weekend too.
Beautiful, dear Marina… You are so talented!…
Happy weekend ahead, Hugs,
Thank you, my dear Aquileana!! A very happy weekend to you too AND a beautiful full moon! 🙂 Hugs! xx
You say the w/c and inks don’t mix but this is not at all noticeable from this gorgeous painting. The bold yellow horizontal dividing the blue purple and the blue green makes this piece sublime. Another magnificent work of heart Marina…
Ah, my dear friend, thank you so much!
As for the mixing, I guess they work because I’m …moodling and nothing can resist a moodler! 😉
Wishing you a wonderful Super Moon! 🙂
