Soft Spring and Lonely Bench Watercolor


Wouldn’t you like to sit for a bit?

Actually, I would like to sit for a while. But a storm is brewing, traveling at its storm speed. So sitting will have to wait, lonely bench. I’ll come back to you. I know where you are!


  1. This is really lovely. What a moment this captures so beautifully. Do you mind if I ask what color the pink/mauve area was that you used? I really love those shades. Thanks for sharing your work!

    1. Sure!! I first applied a very diluted Alizarin Crimson, then on top I applied Mauve. I believe both are Winsor & Newton. In between the two I took a clean wet brush and made them touch. When it was dry I painted a more concentrated color of both on top. Hope this helps! 🙂

  2. What a beautiful piece. I love the focused details on the bench and the bright colors of the tree against the subdued background. Yes, I’d like to sit awhile and enjoy this bench!
