Winter at Tarn Hows



I think Autumn is over and Winter's begun, I'm going by my painting clock! I want to paint snowy tops, all those Autumn leaves have now blown away. I really enjoyed painting this picture of 'Tarn Hows' I kept a limited palette, no Ultramarine Blue for snow shadows, which is the colour I nearly always use. Prussian was the only Blue I used, it is a vicious colour but hopefully handled with care won't bite. 

Tarn hows is one of  the six  projects on my Watercolour Course,

Hi Jane.... that log burning stove sounds like a good idea at this time of the year, hope you manage to keep warm. The Tarn Hows painting looks great even without your "favorite blue", love the reflections.
