Bonfire

Bonfire  SOLD
Watercolour and body colour
27.5 cm x 9 cm or 11 inches x 3.5 inches
This isn't a large watercolour but it is very layered, evening again, the day drifting away like the smoke of the bonfire.  Deep colours on the land hinting at fields, woodland and settlements contrasting with the layers of diamond light reflecting off the water and the seamless sky.
I show you a couple of details so that you can see the colours and brushstrokes that make up this little painting.  It will be varnished and then framed, glassless as I am already in love with the brush marks!

I love these last 2 for moodiness and catching the time and season so well. The light is just gorgeous.
