I could manage to do only these two postcard size paintings during the week.
The first one is my contribution to "A Nos Pinceaux" challenge, decided to paint it in F.Ultramarine/BurntSiena with a touch of warm green.

The second one is my follow up of the article in "Wet canvas". The "Foliage Tutorial" spent two years on the shelf and was read and experienced at last on Sunday.
Oh, when looking for the link to the article, I taped "Foliage Tutorial" in "Wet Canvas" search window and got 7 (!) pages of useful links. People, you are so kind and sharing, thank you so much!


  1. Two very different and very beautiful paintings. In the first one you got the sense of distance so well and it is a very calm and 'quiet ' painting, and in the second one we have all the wamth and color of a beautiful garden, so well done.
    Wish you a great week Irina!

  2. They are both very beautiful and soft! I love the second one, very difficult all those different leaves and flowers. You did a great job!

  3. Complete contrast.. the loneliness and togetherness..both are lovely in their own way!

  4. Both are nice, I prefer the first one for its calm atmosphere and simplicity. Well done Irina!

  5. you've done a god job irina on both the challenge and wet canvas lesson

  6. These are two very lovely watercolours, Irina!

  7. So beautiful! The landscape on the first postcard is something I would have liked to photographed!
