Morning at Porto Novo Beach

Morning at Porto Novo Beach Watercolor painting by Dora Hathazi Mendes.


The Praia de Porto Novo in Portugal, located near Torres Vedras, Santa Cruz, in a cove, surrounded by high cliffs. The Alcabrichel river meets here with the Atlantic Ocean, a popular beach, but still not overcrowded. A magical, very pleasant destination for surfers and families, while the sandy beach is protected by the rocks from the fresh wind of the Atlantic Ocean, but still offer the full force of the water to the surfers. 

My watercolour painting aimed to depict the calm hours of the summer mornings, before the tourists arrives to enjoy this hidden paradise.

Old Carved Boat at Lake Malawi

Old Carved Boat at Lake Malawi. Watercolor painting by Dora Hathazi Mendes.


I had one short year to enjoy the hospitality of the people of Malawi. And what was one one the beauty aside of the warm hearted people, is the Lake of Malawi. I took a photograph about an old carved boat, which was resting of shore, waiting for the busy time of the day to catch fishes. It was a beautiful sunny day, with smooth blue sky, and calm water.

Dreaming of Malawi

Dreaming of Malawi. Watercolour painting by Dora Hathazi Mendes


A watercolour painting about a typical scene in Malawi, a little house with stormy sky, a bit dried out trees, and red flowers. Clothes drying in the wind, and it is completely peaceful. No rush, no distractions, just nature and sky.

 I had the pleasure to spend a short year in Malawi, and this is how I like to remember. This watercolour painting was made after my own photograph.

Big Ben and London Eye

Big Ben and London Eye watercolour painting by Dora Hathazi Mendes


My watercolour painting shows together the three famous landmark of today's London, the Big Ben with the part of the Westminster Abby, and the London Eye. All three are the must visit places category of the capital city, London.

The nickname Big Ben is often referred to the whole tower at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London which currently called Elizabeth Tower, but the nickname actually only for the bell of the clock tower. At the time when the bell was introduced in the British Isles, Big Ben was the world biggest and largest bell, and the people liked to nickname huge bells, but today is kind of a mystery from who came the name Ben.
