Shades of orange (watercolour)


Love the portrayal of a hot day with those lovely shadows and soft and hard edges. Excellent watercolour Michael.

You have captured the feel of the day so well Michael, the distance lost in the heat haze and as Carole said the combination of the hard and soft edges great, nice one.

Thank you Carole and Malcolm for commenting. Glad it looks hot - it is meant to be. My figures on the right could be better and maybe more subdued in shadow.

Thank you Dennis!

Fun to do but made me realise how good Herman Pekel is!
