New watercolor painting, Dreamy Winter seascape for Winter art show in Port Jefferson gallery.
Once upon a time, I saw a baby in its mother's arms smiling brightly and pointing at the sky. When I looked in the direction the baby was pointing with his small hand, I saw that the moon was faintly visible during the day. The baby, probably amazed by the white moon seen during the day, smiled non-stop and pulled her mother's head to look at the sky. The sight was truly beautiful.
I sometimes think of this scene when I think about what art and painting are. Beauty, purity, and emotion that are too precious to be seen alone... I want to share these things. What would I do if an incredibly beautiful sight appeared in my mind? As an artist, I would naturally want to paint this amazing scene.
So today I introduce to you a new watercolor painting. The title of this painting is Dreamy Winter Seascape. The sea and the horizon are real, but the mountains beyond the horizon are a dream world. Our journey is like an invitation and voyage into this dream world.
The title, "Dreamy Winter Seascape," immediately evokes a sense of wonder and tranquility. The combination of the real sea and horizon with the dreamlike mountains beyond creates a captivating contrast, inviting viewers to explore the boundaries between reality and imagination.
The concept of the journey being an invitation and voyage into the dream world adds a poetic and introspective layer to the artwork. It suggests a sense of exploration and discovery, encouraging viewers to contemplate the possibilities that lie beyond the familiar and visible.
Watercolor is a medium known for its fluidity and ethereal qualities, making it well-suited for capturing the dreamy atmosphere I describe. The soft blending of colors and the interplay of light and shadow can enhance the dreamlike quality of the painting, creating a sense of mystery and enchantment.
