Geneva Morning by Theresa Miller

Geneva Morning
7" x 15" Watercolor on paper
I just finished painting this street scene of old town Geneva, I hope you like it. I found painting people very difficult, but the more I paint them, the more I like it. I find that it gives the paintings more movement and soul. These two guys were going up the hill in such a hurry that I wondered what the deal was.... morning rush hour, I guess...

Hi, Theresa. There's is definitely a lot of movement and soul in this painting! I love the shadows and flickering sunlight on the wall. I also like the deep pinks on the shirt in the right.

I just joined your blog. I love this picture. I "attempted" to watercolor for the first time after studying a book-It is much more difficult than you would think. I commend you! Andrea

Beautifully done, Theresa. You really captured the people with your gesture painting. Have you seen the street scenes done by Trevor Lingard?
He loves to paint lots of people into the scenes and I am going to watch his online videos for a few more tips.

Hi Theresa
I like this very much.
It has lots of reflecting light going on.
I think the figures bring life to your paintings. I look forward to seeing more like this. Regards
