Lower field gate.


This had an engaging simple elegance to it.

Lovely, simple is often best!

A beautiful scene Paul, I love the sweeping branch running alongside the gate.

Very pleasing to the eye, Paul.

Great composition and beautiful style.

Beautiful rendering of a wintry scene. The muted greens on the bark are particularly good.

Lovely snowy scene Paul, great job!

It all fits beautifully, Paul. Great scenery and lovely, delicate colours!

Great work, Dixie. Interesting to read how you 'compiled' this picture from several sources, including your memory. A fine result.

Very nice snow scene.

Nice painting, Paul, it works very well

Thank you all for your kind comments they are very encouraging. This was done with a lot of enthusiasm and what I can only call a love of the subject matter, the British countryside. A re visit to landscape painting over the past few week has given me a boost . I would like to dedicate it to you all in the hope that you find your enthusiasm and that continues in these difficult times.

Lovely scene Dixie, the old gate is super.

Nicely painted Paul

Thank you Tessa, George and Stephen for your kind comments.

This is beautiful Paul in its composition and choice of colours. A lovely tree whose branch leads you into the painting.

Lovely snow scene Paul, nicely framed by the tree.

Thank you all for your very kind comments.

A wonderful watercolour Paul. Your tree is the star and sets the scene beautifully.

Fiona and Judith thank you for your kind comments.

Really good painting Dixie.

This is excellent Paul. Great tree and wall.

Many thanks for your kind comments Diane , Anne and Richard they are much appreciated.

Hang on Studio Wall

Slightly bigger than a4 watercolour painting, used a b&w photo of the tree for reference added snow and a few more branches. The rest was made up using scenes from memory and what I thought would fit.
