Winter In The Fens

Winter In The Fens

Like that Fiona. You use ink so well

That was quick Jim! Thank you, you are very kind.

Lovely light Fiona, and a pleasing wintry scene.

Lovely, glowing sky.

Lovely ink sketch Fiona, some rather good mark making which I like immensely. This medium suits your style of drawing.

Nice one Fiona, with some rather good colours - and that style of yours which I'd recognise anywhere.

Wonderful light flooding through.

Tessa, Stephen, Alan, Marjorie, Sandra, thanks very much glad you like it.

Beautiful painting, Fiona, great light.

A real beauty, Fiona. Fantastic ink work and colours. My favourite trees to draw and paint.

This is great Fiona! Love the mix of ink and watercolour. The foreground tree is fab!

Good use of the medium , Fiona , to capture this scene - bags of damn all to quote others. Used to be a common sight around town on the Plane trees but not done now as often in order to save costs.

Love your distinctive ink and wash work, Fiona. Lovely subtle colours in a bright wintry scene.

The warm glow in this wintry scene works really well in this one Fiona.

That big sky and the light makes those skeletal trees really stand out. Beautiful.

That’s lovely Fiona. Look good on anyone’s wall.

Like everything about this Fiona, especially the wonderfully shaped trees.

Beautiful a great work Fiona

Lovely lovely light and beautiful drawing Fiona.

Thank you all ever so much for your wonderful comments, I’m very grateful for your encouragement.

Those willows are so well painted Fiona. Glowing colours..lovely!

Thank you very much Louise and Pete for your commenting.

These pollarded willows have their own beauty, love the shadows, sky and colours, Fiona.

You use the ink so well in your watercolours Fiona. I love the colours and the shadows in this.

Many thanks Annick and Val, your comments are always appreciated.

Thanks very much Gudrun!

Like the glow and the ink work, Fiona

I agree with Jim Fiona. The painting is lovely

Maureen and Dorothy thank you both very much.

A beautiful winter scene Fiona, the light is super.

Thank you very much Margaret.

Fionna, I've just spotted this and I have to say the way you've depicted the trees is excellent. I like thus a lot. Steve

Thanks very much Stevan, I love pollarded Willows, full of character!

Just lovely, once again, Fiona.

Many thanks jennifer.

Fiona - just in case you are on Twitter - this one has been tweeted by Painters Online @artpublishing Congratulations :)

Thank you for letting me know Margaret, the nearest I get to social media is painters online!

Hang on Studio Wall

16”x12” watercolour and ink on Arches. I lived in the Lincolnshire fens for about ten years and although the landscape wasn’t very challenging to paint, it had its gems. The pollarded willows were one of the gems, and the huge skies.
