A Welcoming Light

A Welcoming Light
Watercolour
22.5 x 35.5 cm


It's nice to be out in the snow, but on a cold dark day a welcoming light and a warm fire are good as well.

  1. Oh Keith - it's beautiful. I do think this winter suits your style. The shadows are just wonderful.

  2. Thanks. Yes I suppose it does suit me. I like blues and browns and that's really all there is in these landscapes.

  3. Nice piece of winter Keith! Very cozy and inviting! With all this winter practice... maybe I can coax you over here for some our "deep" winter painting.

    However... from the looks of your subjects at the moment... "You" are already immersed in "deep" winter!

    Keep up the good work!

    Warm regards,
    Bruce

  8. Hi Keith

    This is very good, very atmospheric. How did you do the smoke from the chimney, did you lift it out or mask it?

  10. Hello Stuart. Yes the atmosphere was wonderful. I lifted the smoke out, which was easy to do because the sky was just Ultramarine and Burnt Sienna.
