  1. I love your watercolours Sonya – this has a misty hazy feeling to it that carries mystery. Your world in Basque country sounds very beautiful. Thanks for dropping by. Stephen

  2. Thank-you
    The mountain here is quite hazy. If I remember correctly it took several very delicate washes to build it up.
    Unfortunately the photo I have taken of this painting is pretty bad! The buildings look terrible. In the original watercolour the church of Hondarribia is far more precise.
    This view is seen from Hendaye (France)and looks across the estuary (Bay of Txingudi) to Hondarribia in Spain. But if you live here it’s also all the Basque country!

    I have to say that you make Namibia look pretty wonderful too.
