I hope you’ve had a great start to the new year!
Over the last couple of weeks, with all the snowfall and wintery weather, I’ve used this as a subject for a number of artworks on paper, using watercolour and white gouache. The latest painting in this series is Light over the hills.
I’ve tried to capture the energy, movement and mood of the winter landscape found recently. Inferring a landscape of contrasts, with bright, sunlit snow over the windswept, thawing earth.
Semi-abstract it is created with raw watercolour paints and opaque white gouache on thick Arches paper, to create rich textures and varied, unique marks.
