Cape Lookout after Papeix

My good friend Bev Morgan introduced me to the work of Jean Claude Papeix (http://water-color-paintings.blogspot.com/2011/05/jean-claude-papeix.html) - and I fell in love with his style.

This painting is of Cape Lookout from the trip Charles and I made several weeks ago. I tried to emulate Papeix's style ...

I think of our trip today especially, on our 19th wedding anniversary -- HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, CHARLES! It's been such a busy time for us this month, that we are both grateful for the brief respite we took weeks ago.

We'll celebrate our anniversary this weekend when, hopefully, our whirlwind will slow down!

Thank you for introducing us to Papeix, Lin. I had not heard of him. It's a lovely scene and you have a beautiful touch as usual.

Oh Lin I love the colors in this one, from the deep dark blue-green of the trees and the rust/red/brown on the ground to the pristine pale colors of the water and sky. Beautiful painting altogether!! I love the suggestive yet realistic style.

A big congratulations and happy happy anniversary to you both. In Nov. Bruce and I will have been together for 19 years also; married for 15 this past June and together 4 years in Nov. before that. So, another thing we share!!

Big hugs,

Beautiful job on this!!! I like the not too detailed style.

Happy Anniversary!

This is beautiful. I've not heard of this artist but if this is his style, I like it a lot.
