"Windpower"

watercolor
This is a scene you are very likely to see driving in southern Indiana. They are becoming so popular these days. They are wind turbines to generate power. I remember the first time that I saw them I thought they looked so weird. Now they are common place. These turbines are really BIG!! Amazing!

I am a little worried, not for my health but for your pinturas.MPDR. This sky is really beautiful with hot and cold colors. I don't know how you got to paint the turbine blades in so precise manner.
In Spain, there are a lot of wind turbines on top of mountains, destroying the landscape. But only artists protest.

Excelente acuarela. Soy un enamorado de los cielos en acuarela y este es como para quitarse el sombrero. La forma en que has reservado las aspas e integrado en el paisaje es igualmente muy bella y muy complicado. Enhorabuena.

It looks like the "new" picket fences to paint! It makes a striking composition with dancing whites all the way across.

Julian...I am just good...MPDR. And I do have an artistic license so I was able to leave some of them out and the ones on the left were really on the right. I htink they are really cool. We have some coming nearer to me that are 190" long on each blade.
Julian..can you translate what Jose wrote me...maybe not...you will just make something up.

Thanks Jose. I am not sure what you wrote so I will just pretend it is all good. lol

Susan...I like your thinking...new picket fence. They would be easier to paint in oils or acrylics. Thanks for stopping by :)

Hi, Kathy. Here is my comment translation of José. As you know my English is not to throw rockets- tipical Spanish sentence-
José said: Excellent watercolor. I am a lover of the skies in watercolor and this is for removing the hat- this is a tipical Spanish sentence to speak something excellent, or great - The way that you have painted the blades and integrated into the landscape is also very beautiful and very complicated. Congratulations.

Kathy, one remark: I translated literally the Spanish sentence, when something is not too good as "is not to throw rockets", instead, the real meaning is: "it's not for fireworks display".
