Juillet gris by BlueCaroline Juillet gris by BlueCaroline
Winsor and Newton watercolor

Why do I keep painting frozen rivers in July??

I read every comment carefully and each really means something to me, even though I sometimes do not reply.

I want to thank you for all the support, it makes a difference in my self-confidence concerning my painting.

I've learned and understood a lot about the artist block from your comments on my 2 last deviations. Thank you again. In the next days, I will probably do a journal about what I've learn about this awful thing, an artist block.

Out of this world gorgeous.
You probably paint frozen rivers because you know I absolutely love winter pictures, even though I can not stand the cold. Besides, there is no such thing as snow in this part of Peru. We are in the desert.
This is so soft, lovely, the colors are beautiful.

Congrats on the DD, love the use of white space and the subject matter; I lived in both Alaska and up state NY so this is very familiar and you captured the essence perfectly, I will have to watch your work from now on

Another visual feast!  I like the trees so much!  Parts are a little blurry (not a criticism - just how they look to me) and parts are so crisp in focus - the incredible tiny details!  The mottled colours really give excellent depth to the painting.  The clouds above the mountain are soft and rolling - ready to bring more snow!  You and your art are great!
