Blogaversary Post


Today is my blogaversary! I have been writing this blog for a year now. Thanks for reading and leaving me your comments. This blog's non identcal twin Raspberry and Chipotle shares this date.
The picture above is another that I did of Reid's Palace. It is the view from the Royal Savoy.( See yesterday's post)
I used a blue aquarelle pencil for the drawing and then brushed on some water to create washes. I was inspired by the lovely blue and white tiles called azulejos that are to be seen in Madeira and mainland Portugal.
We visited the Casa Museo de Frederico de Freitos where there is an amazing extensive collection of decorative tiles.

Happy Blogaversary! Your painting is really lovely, or is that a drawing that has been paint-brushed? Not sure which it is, but it's pretty.
