Harbor view

We sailed through the passage known as the "Deer Island Thorofare" which meant we would pass by beautiful Stonington Harbor on the southern tip of Deer Isle. Filled with lobsters boats, it is still a working harbor and has been for generations of lobsterman and fisherman.

I know where this is! My husband's family owns Harbor Island in South Brooksville not too far away. My family also spent many summers on Monhegan Island while I was growing up.

It's a very, lovely sketch! :-)

I don't always know why you choose the colors you do, but I do know that I always love the result!

What a great ink drawing - I love all the detail. And the splash of bright yellow (and reserving the white which is something I need to learn to do) was brilliant.

Wonderful painting! I love the orange in the sky!
For me, probably the biggest challenge with watercolors is always to "dare" leaving areas empty/white. But this is exactly what adds so much glow and beauty to a painting - I think you are really good at it!

And I absolutely LOVE the tree in the picture of your previous post. It's just amazing.

The ink drawing is lovely and its precision contrasts so well with the loose color washes. I agree with the other comments about your use of reserved whitespace. Great work! Thanks for sharing, Ambal

I love how you mix your warm and cool colors and still end up with gorgeous vibrant colors.
