MOSS COTTAGES – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1020443(1)Another image from my early morning cycle ride the other week. I loved the way the buildings become part of the trees, emerging out of the woods. It appears that there is quite a tight chromatic range, but I used more colours on this than the previous paintings where I used just  three. Here I used six colours. Not sure if it is very commercial, but I am taken by its earthiness.

A PICTURE OF RURAL DOMESTIC BLISS -WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

Well, firstly, seasons greetings to  all my reader. I hope 2017 turns out less fretful and more hopeful than it looks like it’s going to be around here at present.Still, it was hope which lingered after Pandora opened her box of tricks.

This image is for a company which uses my images. They asked me for something to illustrate “fresh cotton” scent, whatever that is. They mentioned cottages, cotton clothes on the line and greenery, so I took the image of  an old painting of mine which I had sold, found a cottage and added some sheets. I hope they like it. I think it really meets the brief, but then you never know.
