Country Track in watercolours

I have been wanting to paint another watercolour landscape for ages so finally got around to painting one.  I changed the reference photo a bit - added the flowers and created a field on the right hand side (was just dense trees foliage in the reference photo). Also thought about changing the fence to run alongside the track but in the ended left it as is.  Rather pleased how it turned out - the clouds were a happy accident - was going for  different effect but I wasn't happy how it was going so ended up lifting paint with paper towel and my clouds were suddenly formed.

 Country Track measure 10 x 8 inches and is painted on 300 gsm rough Arches watercolour paper.


Many thanks to Steve Lyddon for the reference photo.
