Watercolor Weekend | Fall Cabin

Watercolor Weekend | Fall Cabin

Welcome back to another Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend.  We are now at the end of the Fall season and most of the trees here in NH have lost their leaves.  I have been doing quite a bit of watercolor paintings with Fall in full bloom, so I thought I would do a Fall Cabin with most of the leaves underneath the trees.

Let’s get on with it …shall we?

I chose one of the new Art Impressions Rustic Cabins Set as my focal image on this project.  I used Sepia to stamp it on Canson XL Watercolor Paper.  Using my palette, I added English Red to the roof and chimney and African Violet to the windows.  I used the fine tip of my Sepia to add the logs and added some additional Sepia from my palette.

I cut a mask from a post-it note and covered my cabin.  I used the firs from the WC Fir Trees Set and Pine Green to create trees behind the cabin. I added trees using the WC Branches Set and Sepia.  I added leaves using English Red and Orange to the trees and the ground underneath.

I added a tree on the left of the cabin using the WC Fir Trees Set with Sepia and Pine Green.   I added the small grass along with some Sepia to ground the house and tree. Finally, as a finishing touch, I used Prussian Blue to add a sky above the cabin.  As always, I signed and dated my work and that’s it…easy peasy.

Card Details:

I cut the painting down to 3 3/4 x 5 and mounted it to a piece of Gina K Designs Cranberry Tart cardstock cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  I mounted this to a white card base.

Thank you so much for joining me today.  Make sure you show some love to my fellow designers on Instagram – Tricia Kennedy and Dot Freel.
