December Afternoon, 2016, watercolour, 16 x 13 inches..
I began this painting with a wash of pale blue/grey all over, and it was initially a still life of evergreen leaves and dried grasses. Keeping the colour range of warm browns and pale blues and greens, it grew with the addition of curtains and the imagined figure and winter trees I could see from my French studio window. I liked the figure shutting out the winter landscape from the warm interior.
