Victoria Hong Kong  Skyline – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor

This painting is from June of 2012.  The photo reference was provided by my friend, Joel from WetCanvas.  He lives in the Philippines, but this is Hong Kong.    Joel does a lot of traveling.   There is just so many fun ways to paint buildings!   🙂

About Katherine Mansfield

Katherine Mansfield was the pen name of short story writer Katherine Beauchamp, who is best known for her collection The Garden Party. Born in New Zealand on October 14, 1888, she moved to England as a young woman and became friends with writers such as Virginia Woolf and D.H. Lawrence. Her writing style was influenced by Anton Chekhov; like him, she focused on intimate moments that revealed character. She in turn influenced a generation of short story writers. She died on January 9, 1923 of tuberculosis.

    I love the simplicity of this. The boat reminds me of a dragon.

    Hello Beth. Like the bright watercolor very much. Also finding your author “profiles” intriguing. Have you been reading Mansfield’s work recently or just posting short writers’ bios at random?

      Thanks so much! I love affirmations, and find them all over the place. I have about 30 inspirational books and some come from online. Every now and then, I will be intrigued enough about an author to read more of their work… like Eleanor Roosevelt. That lady is fascinating!
