New forest.


My attempt at a monochrome watercolour from the past. "Well", I thought, "Green should be easy as it's so common in nature". Hmmmm, how wrong. Seen a green deer on your travels anyone? I was really struggling with the medium at the time, (even more than I do now) and it shows in places.
Nevertheless, I was very happy with this at the time. The photograph has washed out some of the colour which, ironically, has unified the image and lifted it. 
Watercolour on Bockingford 140lb.


  1. Your painting is so nice! I especially like the highlights you have made with the lighter green at the left low. It really lifts the painting. Congratulations!!

  2. I like the way you used the green tones in this!!!
