This is lovely Jane. I really like how you have the layers of recession and the shadows. The light draws the viewer into this. Must have been so nice to be painting outside.

Catharina ha detto...

Very different from your usual paintings! It´s nice.

Blaga ha detto...

So beautifully simplified!

RH Carpenter ha detto...

This is really lovely - nice values show depth and I like the wet and juicy watercolor. This even looks like a wet day - perhaps after a rain.

Jeanette ha detto...

Its a hint of spring for me in this piece. I like the dept of field you've achieved with the shades of green.

Unfortunately, I have to wait longer for spring to be here.

Jane ha detto...

This is very different from what we are used to seeing, but I really like it ! Oh, just noticed that Catharina said the same :-)

Delizioso nella sua semplicità e freschezza. Buona settimana, Jane!

Un boceto muy sugerente, fresco, invita a pasear.

Plein air is never easy and what a stunner with all that layering and depth. Fab painting.

Ciao Jane,
mi piace molto l'effetto quasi "a strisce" che dà movimento e alternanza. Bello!
Ciao, abbracci, Floriana

Wonderful painting! It's sort of layered and hints of mist. I kept looking for elves and fairies ... it's their sort of environment.

I don't know if we are living in the clouds but it's raining and fog like!

John (JWJarts) ha detto...
