Hello my dear Steemians and Art Fans,

 

After couple of days we finally arrived to our holiday destination and today we are able to get back to Steemit.
You can imagine that everything here is different, our computer is too slow and limited programs on our PC, we are also
busy with all the things around.

Nevertheless, I have taken my Art materials with me and while looking through the magazines that we have here I found such beautiful picture of Riga, the capital of Latvia with old architecture at waterside, that is why I just grabbed
my watercolor and created this painting, hope you like it.

Beautiful. I love the colors of the sky.
May I ask what’s the brand of your watercolors? I want to buy some and I’m asking around.

Thank you @alejandra.her, I used few different ones, one widely spread in UK is "Winsor&Newton" because they are local that is why not so expensive, but also for this painting I used "White nights" from St. Petersburg

Thanks! We can’t find Winsor&newton here, the only option is buying in amazon and el wait for the shipping. I’ve used Rubinstein, Which I don’t like that much.
Thanks for answering

This is a professional job, it's spectacular. I'm a cartoonist.

I'm new to Steemit but I'll be publishing my work.

Hi @fleur, thank you for your nice words, when there is such beautiful architecture then I can't stand and not to try, I do have my last watercolor paper but some more other papers so have to plan what I am going to use them for :)

Эх, а я так и не научусь никак писать акварелью. Красивая картина. Прямо бери и вешай на стену в память о незабываемых каникулах в Риге :-)
Желаю тебе отлично отдохнуть, но и не терять вдохновения для творчества!
