Sunshine meadow, Samoens

Sunshine Meadow
Painted in Watercolours

I so enjoyed painting this stunning view from above Samoens.
Especially with each brushstroke done on site.
I had lovely company over the two afternoons it took to paint.
Talking through what we could see, colours we noticed, we wondered how to tackle the trees and the flowers.
We had to cheat a little as the farmer had just cut the meadow, but with flowers around the path and the bench we sat upon, there was plenty of inspiration and ideas.

To paint outdoors is such a magical experience, watching the wildlife, been aware of the weather, smelling the wild flowers and gazing at a view.
