Cirque du Fer Cheval, Sixt

Cirque du Fer Cheval  painted in watercolours.
Size 19 x 12 inches

I enjoyed painting the 'Sixt horseshoe' on a wet damp day here in Samoens. 
Sitting watching the weather change by the hour. The rain pounding on the roof, puddles outside on the terrace.
With the door open and listening to the birds singing.

You might wonder how I painted it? 
Time spent sketching in Sixt Cheval figuring out the shapes.
A cycle ride and gazing at the peaks
A photo reference
A new Sable Rigger size eight and a dream to paint with.
