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.
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.
