I have many photographs from my trip to Iguassu Falls from both the Brazilian and Argentinian side. I’ve always wanted to do painting of the falls but felt it was too difficult. After a couple of false starts, I decided to go small and painted this 4 1/2 by 6 inch watercolour from one of the pictures.
In the summer I go to exercise classes at Barnet Park in Calabogie twice a week. It is a beautiful setting. I frequently arrive early and sketch until its time for the class. I always bring my camera.
These watercolours are from photos I took. They are the same view but one is taken with a wider angle.
The colours are a little more subdued on this watercolour compared to my usual paintings.
A new watercolour based on a photograph I took on a trip to Brazil several years ago.
My friend Marnie is looking out at Iguassu Falls. We spent a day on the Bazilian side and another on the Argentinian. The falls are magnificent. I will paint them someday.
The house isn’t that old. It’s just that my friends, Margo and Pat have bought a new one. I felted them a reminder of their former house.
