Winter sky Eden Valley

Winter Sky, Eden Valley

Painted in Watercolours

I look across this view each morning,
It fills me with delight,
to see it wrapped in a blanket of fresh snow.

I painted this with a limited palette of magical colours, Cobalt Turquoise being one.
Lots of white paper was left untouched. And no pre-sketching, just in with a brush loaded with paint.
