Winter In The Forest

Winter In The Forest

Delicate and beautiful , love the colour palette, and the background washes.

A delightful painting. Like the pallet you have used, and the choice of plant, Teasel is one of my favourites they die so beautifully.

Very effective and lovely muted colours, Sophie

Love the effects and colours in this one Sophie. Can I ask how you achieve the perfect, fine lighter lines? I'm guessing gouache but however you've painted them, they certainly look good against the background washes.

Thank you very much everybody. Louise, I lift off the dry paint with a clean wet flat fine brush to reveal the white of the paper underneath. It doesn't work so effectively on all paper but I use bockingford when I want to use this technique.

Beautiful, Sophie. Live the soft tones and delicate lines.

Beautifully painted

Thanks Sophie. That hadn't actually occurred to me as they are so fine ..can't fault them :) It's a really lovely watercolour!

Love the cool Winter-ness of it, beautifully rendered.

Love your soft muted colour palette, a great watercolour painting 😃

This really is an eye catcher. Sophie. Love the subject and the delicate colour palette.

So very beautiful and delicate Sophie.

Really like this, Sophie!
