Card of Cornwall from Vivien


Along with the July postcard from Charlene this beautiful August card of Vivien was also in my mailbox when I came back from vacation. The picture shows the wild Cornish coast near Porthgwarra the way I've experienced several times. It's done with water soluble pen, watercolor and gouache white. I love very much the spontaneous technique of this small painting, the circle composition and especially the harmony of colors.
On the reverse is another treasure. The collage represents very well the colors and atmosphere of a country I love too. Thank you so much Vivian!

This is a special card from an artist who loves her painting places - it shows in the wonderful atmospheric way she portrays them.

Spoilt! That's what you are Albrecht. ;) Anyway you deserve a special card so I'll try not to envy you this beauty.

Gorgeous, Vivien.
