BARE WINTER TREES – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

As winter draws to its cruel close I came upon this view over the Brede Valley in East Sussex. It was from a dark photo, into the sun, looking over a church cemetery – where some of my maternal family are buried, and on into the valley beyond. I liked the skeletal tree and added another on the right. I lightened the foreground up and created some rough ground instead. Winter coming to an end.

The creation of the branches was a therapeutic exercise, with rain thrashing the window and a spot of Bach on the stereo. It filled a wet morning perfectly.

Other landscapes are available for sale on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com at very reasonable prices.

  1. If I had to choose only one of your paintings (as far as the limited numbers I’ve seen so far) to be my favorite, this painting would be it. The rough ground is one splendid touch, a great complement of vibration to the winter sun. Looks like winter really is coming to an end.
