my imaginary forest in yellow, umber, sepia, ocher, goldenrod … earth hues
permeating it’s surroundings,
or is it the other way round…

  1. Nice work in watercolors. Would like to see more in more visits.
    Nice to come by your interesting blog.
    Also welcome to visit my travel-lifestyle blog.


    Thank you.
    Have a Blessed 2023.

  2. I’ve always been a big watercolor fan. This is a very intriguing composition– lovely. Thanks for providing the detail images as well. Great to be able to see your technique up close. : )

    • Thank you so much, Mark. Your words mean a lot!
      The reason why I show details is that I have this thing for textures and enlarging a watercolor brings out such beautiful textures… I really don’t consider myself a “master’ [good heavens] of watercolor, or any medium for that matter. I simply use them to my advantage [that sounds pretty horrible, doesn’t it?!] 🙂
      I’m very happy following your beautiful work!

  3. beautiful…what I like about your work is that you keep it so simple. and the colors are so pleasing to the eye…(But keeping it simple is difficult )….thank s for sharing..

    • Thank you, Anne! 🙂
      Sometimes I get this feeling that colors I may not be that fond of, try to do their best to please me! That’s when it hits me: I love them all! 🙂

  4. What an incredible scene. I love the spaciousness and clump of trees in the distance. A sunrise of the spirit. Beautiful.

  5. Marina,

    I admire how you blend the woods into the earth, yet still convey a separate root system; all the while making it all float!.

Happy to hear your thoughts
