Soft Spring and Lonely Bench Watercolor ChristineMay 7, 2015art, Artwork, nature, sketchbook, watercolor sketching Post navigation PreviousNext 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!

Thanks, Gene! 🙂
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!
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! 🙂
Makes me want to go and find a bench to sit on!
LOL! Thanks Jane 🙂
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!
Thanks Mary Anne!
