MMaxi11 study on colours
That was my thirteenth Lesson
The landscape attempt was fun but I decided that there was not much more I could do
I decided to finish the journey with my hand stamp
I started a new project
Reflection of a boat
Yellow brown green "*Burgundy Sails"
Lets see what happens
The New Year is here and life is slowly going back to normal
The new Ipad is fun but so far I only used it for playing games
The snow and ice is gone now is only rain
Amsterdam is very quiet at this time of the year
I'm happy the proposed laws about selling grass at the coffee shop to non Dutch Citizens is not going to take affect
Change is sometimes good, "but not for everything".
Happy 2011, may there be many different COLORS
Burgundy is a shade of purplish red associated with the Burgundy wine ofthe same name, which in turn is named after the Burgundy region of France. The color Burgundy is similar to other shades of dark red such asmaroon. It is often called wine red, or simply wine.
The first recorded use of burgundy as a color name in English was in 1881.

My eleventh and twelfth Lesson
Days go by
Random paintings and thoughts
That Funchal View
What can I say I had my eleventh lesson last week, not much happened for some reason I was still uncertain if it was a good idea to have a go at painting a view of Funchal.
I was born on that city and I lived 18 years on the top of the hills.
I must have looked at that view so many times.
But the strange thing is that I could not picture it in my head, that view.
But it as been over 20 years, no wonder I can't remember that view.
That is why I used one of my many photos of that view.
This week on my twelfth lesson,
Color splashes, the playing on the blue shades the sea is done, the sky still needs something??? but I already have an idea as to what I should do.
One more touch of white and I will move on to the next journey.
Two more wednesdays two more lessons before MMaxi10colours becomes MMaxi11colours .
The temperature is going down this weekend there'll be ice and snow a lot of reflections on the canals maybe have a rest from painting and take a few shots of Amsterdam winter.
Season greetings MMaxi10

MMaxi10 study on colors
A couple hours to go and it is time to have my tenth oil painting lesson
I am going to have a go at a landscape the city of Funchal in Madeira
I wish I was actually there now where it is warm sitting on the boulevard
Looking at that blue, the way the houses are pilled up the hills
But I will do my best to capture the colors with this photo of mine taken some time ago
I have no idea how to start but I guess that I will be fine I like my teacher he will guide me for sure
We shall see what happens, time will tell
