Autumn By The Lake

Autumn By The Lake is an original watercolour sketch inspired by my trip to the New Forest. The colours were just shifting from summer and it all seemed to be calming down. I find autumn a very restful season where you can contemplate things and stop rushing around. I think this painting shows that.
Beautiful blush pinks, soft mauves into grey, delicate olive greens with a hint of charcoal detail, finished with a touch of ink.

As this is an original watercolour sketch from my note book please be aware that the paper has a slight bend- as is the nature of watercolour paper used in this way.
Unframed 12 X 8"

Would look lovely framed with a big mount and in my opinion… an old brass frame to make the most of its warmth.

*Please note I aim to get the colours as true as possible but different screens may have different light settings. If you have a blue light setting on your phone then please make sure you turn this off.
