Watercolors: Distant Pasture

Distant Pasture

I had some time this afternoon to do a painting since my good ole husband tended to the the neighbors dogs for the second of fours trips over there today. I thinking about all this cold weather coming upon us and it got me to thinking of our up coming trip home, which in turn reminded my of our road trip here and all the beautiful pastures I see along the way. So it’s more of a spring painting.

Watercolors on 140 lb. weight watercolor paper.

  2. Yes, it looks like a nice pastoral scene. Relaxing and pleasant. It’s still fairly nice here, but winter will be here all too soon.

    • Well… compared to what winter can bring, it’s still nice here too, but the thought of having to deal with snow…
      Thanks for the comment on my painting, Binky!

    • I know, I’ve been rather busy lately with dog sitting and it cut into my art time, among other things.
      You have some beautiful scenery over there, Novroz.
      Thank you for the comment on my painting, Novroz!

    • I don’t know where you live, but I got a feeling that I’ll find back home most of the leaves have fallen as well.

    • I don’t have a page anywhere at this time on painting with watercolors since I have only started myself last January…Wow, that long already. Just pick up your paint brush and let your inner self take you away. It’s fun…

  9. Lovely Spring Painting Deb, and It makes me feel so peaceful inside.. that I’m now leaning against the stone wall, taking a deep, deep breath, and sighing…happily. hugs to you, for such a beautifully captured moment in time. .. xPenx

    Reply
    • Then this painting was worth painting just for the moments of peacefulness you felt in side, Pen. Thank you for such a lovely comment!
      Have a most beautiful day filled with love and peace,

  10. I love looking at scenery. I get in trouble with my wife for watching the scenery too much while I am driving. She never drives so I look while I am driving.

    Reply
    • You and I live in places that are just too hard to keep our eyes off of it. Most all of it is so beautiful in the country.
      My husband likes to do all the driving. He won’t get in anyone else’s vehicle, and in his own, he does the driving…he had a really bad experience 45 years ago.
      Hope all goes well for you at the doctor’s office today, Bo.

  12. Beautiful painting. Love the fading layers of distant mountains.

    Reply
    • When I first set them it I was not sure it if would look right, but as I built in more foreground they the distant mountains looked better all the time.
      Thank you for commenting, Curtis!

    Yes a lovely painting, and that tree is almost
    bending over for some attention 🙂 What a very
    nice and colourful watercolour, something to
    really enjoy before the winter sets in 🙂

    Have a lovely Tuesday now Deb 🙂

    • That may be a tell tale of me being left handed.
      I’m really not looking forward to snow, and really hope we don’t get any at all this year…which is rare case. So I’ll just hope for only a little bit of it.
      I do however look forward to getting back home. I’m sure the house sitter has had just about enough too.
      Have a wonderful evening, Andro, and thank you for commenting!

      • Andro!! You remembered that I have cats at home waiting for me. How very thoughtful of you to remember and make mention of them to me.
        Yes, I’m sure they have missed us, and will now dis us…corny line, I know. But you know how cats can be…I’ll be talking to their backs for several days till they are done punishing me. It’s will be so good to see them again.

        You have a wonderful evening of what is left of it… That is if you are still up, otherwise I hope you have a great day tomorrow.
        Hugs,
        Deb xx

  16. I like that you chose to use a vertical format with this to accentuate the height of the tree, Deb. You were still able to pull off that incredible amount of depth, also. I think that is difficult with a vertical format. Now you have me thinking. Good one!

    Reply
  17. I think that if I had pulled the tree on the other side of the wall it would have given it even more depth, but I already put the wall up when I realized that. But I learned something from this so I’m happy about that.
    Got you thinking? Hmmm… can’t wait to see your next vertical painting. 🙂
    Thanks for coming in, Leslie and commenting!

  18. Nice scene Deb. The colours you chose give it a real softness, if that makes sense. I know what I mean anyway…

    Reply
    • Yes, of course you make sense… I understand what you mean. And thank you for it as well, Tony!
      I’m glad you like it, Tony… Thank you!

  19. Trees are always so difficult for me to artistically convey. I guess i try to overthink nature and that’s no way to approach it.

    Reply
    • They’re no picnic for me either. But I look at it like this… All trees are different.
      Thanks for commenting, George.

  21. This is a cool perspective from which to view this pasture. I feel as if O’m on top of the world and nothing can steal my happiness.

    You and your talent have grown so much and they are beautiful…You and dad are wonderful artists and I hope that one day I can do what the two of you do.

  23. What a pleasant surprise to wake up to this morning to see your comment! And what a lovely thing to share with me Bunny….Thank you so much!
    You are an artist too…. it just takes practice. I fall short much of the time when drawing or painting, but learn a little something each time. What is most important is to just have fun doing it.
    Thank you for coming and, commenting, Bunny!
    Big Hugs,
