Landscape 133

Recently while going through an old box I found a bundle of small pieces of watercolour paper. I had cut the paper to fit into very small photograph frames when I did miniatures for gift shops in a couple of the hospitals in Toronto, Ontario many years ago.

I decided to paint a small snow scene and quickly washed in a sky with French ultramarine blue and using Antwerp blue painted in snow covered hills leaving some areas white for the sunlit snow.

Next I painted in the background evergreen trees using various mixes if French ultramarine blue, raw sienna, new gamboge, burnt sienna and Antwerp blue.

While waiting for the paint to dry I washed a small amount of raw sienna into some of the white areas of snow.

Using a little pure China white I painted in some birch trees.

This original 1-1/2" x 2-1/4” watercolour painting when matted and shrink wrapped will be available for $15.00

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork.
