Ambience

I am posting this particular image of a little watercolour because of the photo that Paula posted yesterday – it chimed with me.

I wouldn’t say that this picture has exceptional ambience, but to me it does have an ambience…of silence, of loneliness perhaps, and I have known it most of my life. Bought by my parents in the late 1960s, I think, and I always loved it because of that little ramshackle boat shed… I have been to that lake in Austria many years ago, but alas, no decaying shed when I was there!

  1. How lovely, I like the tonal variations in this painting and the boating shed, of course ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Awwwww and wow for a few reasons. I was going to visit Ossiachersee in October, but hubby got sick and we put it off. It is so beautiful and does look a lot like my photo. My landscape is located in Italy 342 km further from your Austrian lake ๐Ÿ™‚ I am having chills now ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. The shed makes it, completely. I cannot imagine it as a landscape otherwise.
    Besides, it fits in so well with you love of decay!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. Superb choice Sue. Love the moody melancholiness in both your entries.

  6. What a timeless painting, you’re lucky to have it.

  7. a painting with a lot of atmosphere, I like it

  8. Brilliant. I love that watercolour Sue. It is outwardly simple but definitely oozes ambience.

  9. Was it bought, Sue, or did someone you know paint it? It’s lovely ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. I can see why you love it, Sue.

  11. I think it has plenty of ambiance. Seems to be captured just before some heavy rain is coming in over the valley. Those subtle and delicate colours enhances the ambient feeling.

  12. The genesis of your love of the ramshackle?

  14. It has wonderful appeal – I can see why you love it. how lucky that you know the area so well!

  15. I think it Jen lovely Sue!

  16. Excellent use of palette to help the mood, MM๐Ÿ€

  17. I would be very happy to hang that on my wall. There were quite a lot of pictures hanging on the walls of the family home when I grew up and I still have quite a few of them. I can’t bear to part with them – they are part of ‘me’ somehow, as well as being images that still inspire in one way or another.

  18. A superb acuarela! So ‘speaking’ about serenity and harmony!
