Across the field to the forest

Across the field to the forest

Watercolour 15" x 11"

Another rural scene leading on from my last posting.  I am trying to perfect the look of tall pine trees.  They seem to loose their lower branches, save for a few stubs, and then gain more of a lollipop look about them.  Here the forest is mixed in with some deciduous species and the foreground is winter grass.  Good to do a bit of scraping to get the grassy look, which I don't normally do.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press Paper, 300 gms.
