Tangled Wood Winter

BrentW profile image

My posting for 'Off Topic Fridays'. I did some drawing this week, but decided what I really wanted to do was paint. I know this is out of season, but I really wanted to paint some tree trunks. For this small (8" by 8") painting, I was determined to have fun, so I used a plethora of materials and techniques, with: watercolour, white acrylic ink, clingfilm, Inktense in various colours, 8B water-soluble graphite pencil, white watercolour pencil, and white gouache. It took three days in total, and boy, was I happy! I hope you like it.

I love the colours you have chosen. It must have been so fulfilling producing a painting. It really depicts a love of nature. Thank you for sharing and I hope you have a good weekend and have time to do more painting.💕👍xx

That is sublime BrentW. My favourite palette of colours! And the technique at which you excel! So pretty. I'd love to see this in my living room on an enormous canvas. Well done, it's beautiful! 🙏🙏👍👍

Wouldn't that be lovely. Unfortunately, oils and I are strangers to one another.

oils are very pongy and the colours a bit solid. water colouroracrylis give such a love ley effect.

Wow, you do sound to be busy. We put in some raised beds, but were late planting our seeds. I have so far had radishes from them. I am waiting for carrots and turnips. Why is everything growing so slowly this year?
