Mexico Sunset

Mexico Sunset
Image Size 11" x 30"

Finally!  A post where I won't be complaining about watercolor paper!  I'm sure you were getting tired of hearing me moan about such a silly thing as paper.  For this painting, I used Waterford 200# cold press paper and painting on it was easy and predictable.

I haven't worked on this paper for awhile but I've always liked it.  It doesn't buckle like 150# paper does and it doesn't hold onto water so long which causes the paints to blend too much as can happen on 300# paper.

It was fun to play with the soft edges for these clouds.  The reference photo that I used has a boat in it and I will probably paint another version in the future and include that.


  1. So pretty and so makes me want to be on a boat gazing towards this horizon!

  2. Beautiful Mexican Sunset, Nancy! Beautiful colors and love the reflections...

  3. Bonjour chère amie,

    J'aime beaucoup cette aquarelle. Le choix du format est aussi intéressant, il engage le regard loin devant. Quel merveilleux coucher de soleil !

    Je vous fais de gros bisous ♡

  4. Oh yes, a glass of wine and lots of days watching this show. Fluffy clouds and beautiful sunset colors. Nice Nancy
