The Silence of Paraty by Rssfim The Silence of Paraty by Rssfim
Watercolour on paper.

Paraty is a beautiful seaside town in the southwest of the state of Rio de Janeiro. A calm place that has a rustic old architecture and is famous for hosting several cultural events. Whenever you're in Rio, don't miss it!

I like your painting. It has great impact and it is done very neetly. I like all the shadows on the white walls, they generate tree dimensional look. Also I love dirty spots on the bottom of these walls. They are adding realistic texture to the painting. Darker corners (shade and tall tree)frame this street beautifully. I would suggest darker and more vivid sky so that interesting tower could be more visible and appreciated. Other then that it is very nice painting. I would consider you as someone who should I learn from. Come and visit my site, your critique is also welcome :)

You're welcome. BTW, One of the cloud formations looks like a crocodile or alligator if not expanded.

Hi!! I never paid attention to the clouds, as I painted them without thinking in a shape... but I have to confess it's clearly an aliigator! :wow:

I'm reminded of the band America's song "Ventura Highway".

Hi :wave:

Ventura Highway is a great song, but reminds me a road, far away from the sea.

Paraty is a coastal town full of fishing boats. It's a so calm place that always reminds me "Mercy Street" from Paul Simon.

Thanks for your comment! :D

Well, we're not used to stop for so long, as a siesta demands, but I agree the place is so calm that a nap would be pretty fine... :D
