Hello Andrea,

I find line drawings over watercolor very appealing and this one is no exception. I know doing this can be quite difficult. Not the watercolor part so much, because you can really get lost in watching the paint merge together. I find making the decision about the lines challenging. You make it seem so easy, however.

This is very beautiful, Andrea!

Have a Lovely Day!

Andrea, i just love this. I can so imagine these kisses and the ensuing volcano of emotions well illustrated by the watercolor paints. So evocative and lovely. Something one would want hanging over the bed! Or opposite perhaps.

So beautiful, kissing under the vulcano!

Lynn said...

Did you catch these kissing couples on the Metro, or is from your imagination?
Lovely drawing and painting.

Gosh Andrea! I really like this. If I could just learn to draw, then I could do watercolor sketches too! It's always fun to see what you draw on your watercolor washes. It's like mindless doodling, which I love. Terrific painting.

c'est beau, ces gens qui s'embrassent dans des flammes!
Tu me donnes envie de faire de l'aquarelle!

Mim said...

I love this, both the technique and the drawings.

Dianne said...

Very evocative, Andrea! I love this watercolour with the line drawing - must try this myself! I have always started with some lines and then come in with the paint, this looks much more intuitive!

Elizabeth said...

I love the looseness of your watercolours, and the nice grainy effect some have. Wonderful, as always.

Ja, ich weiß, ich bin ein bißerl verrutscht, aber das Bild gefällt mir so gut. Das ist wie ein Traum, es ist sooo zart gemalt und trotzdem knistert es vor erotischer Spannung. Ich glaube nicht, daß mich Chagall da mehr überzeugen hätte können!!!

Schicke Dir warme Grüße ins kalte Paris, das mit solchen Bildern durchaus erwärmt!

The animals on sticks Andrea nearly came true, on tv they had hill farmers in France and there land is boggy so they herd there animals on stilts, how they kept on them must be difficult and they were almost running and they were so mufffld up they looking exactly like them.

Keep forgetting Andrea but will you do a interview for me, l just send you some questions.
Also if there are any painters of abstract art and wouldn't mind ,just get in touch.
Am doing fine art next and a brain storming with digital art..
