Still alive

Still alive

Very sensitively painted, a beautiful tree.

I just love the way you simplify a scene to the bare bones and then paint it with such panache. Just delightful.

Wow ! how many quirky trees live in your area Mia, a painters delight and nicely painted as always.

Such a lovely touch Mia! Very simple but so beautiful.

Thank you all very much for taking the time to comment on my tree-paintings. And yes, William, if the pollard-willows are not pruned regularly, they complety split in half and turn into the spooky trees you can see in the Disney-films. I am fascinated by them, so in the next time I will try to paint one of those.

My kind of scene, nice work

Thank you, Neil. I am regularly watching your gallery and I like your work very much. This is how watercolour should be like: simple (!!!) and still telling a story.

Another beautiful piece, Mia. The composition is superb.

Trees with a difference. Lovely interpretation of this one.

I love the title and the painting! Very appealing.

I am very pleased with your lovely comments, Seok, Carole and Avril. Thank you very much.

Mia I simply adore your study of this tree. Well its more than a study of course! I particularly like your choice of greens, very natural whilst still retaining a freshness and brilliance. Very nice work indeed. PS thank you for your positive comments about Tintagel Post Office. Best regards Chris CABBYCABBAGE

Thank you very much for your lovely comment, Chris. I appreciate.

Hang on Studio Wall

This is a watercolour I made a few months ago. The tree caught my attention, because: standing in the middle of a field, no other trees around it and although it had no leaves at the top, it seemed to have survived a cold winter
