GUEST DOODLEWASH: Dreaming of Erbalunga

Erbalunga, Corsica by Philippe Noguera


This dreamy doodlewash was created by Philippe (@Phinomet), when I insisted he make one last night. Actually, I had asked him to be Sunday’s guest post again early in the week, and he was thinking that meant painting on Sunday. I explained to him that guests posts go up in the morning, and so we doodlewashed together after dinner (and wine).

While I was creating something sort of ridiculous that I’ll post later today, he was making this lovely scene of Erbalunga, a pretty coastal village in Corsica, on the eastern coast of Cap Corse. His best friend, Zélie, had recently posted photos of their amazing trip they took together there years ago as part of her birthday wish to him.

I’ve never been there, but I definitely want to go someday. And love the way he’s captured the peaceful and serene mood in a way that really does make it seem like a dream location. It’s still been so long since we’ve taken a vacation, but hopefully that will change in the coming year. In the meantime, we’ll both just be dreaming of Erbalunga.

    It is very serene.. Love the warm colors, even in the water. And I look forward to seeing what you created later.. 😊

    It does indeed have that elevated, dreamy longing quality to it, and with justification – it certainly looks a desirable setting! The execution of the water is particularly gorgeous.

      Yay! Glad you liked it Jacob! It was fun to compare our doodlewashes when we finished. His was such a beautiful painting, and mine was well…as always, a bit on the tongue and cheek side of things. 😊

    Great image. I love the dark shadows under the eves and between buildings.

      Aren’t they cool! I sometimes think we shouldn’t doodlewash together as then I don’t see him do it! Lol I should watch next time so I learn something! 😉
