“The Tree By The River” is one of the new additions to my Landscape Watercolor Gallery. From one of my many hiking ventures last year in the Pacific Northwest, I was inspired by the view through this moss covered tree. It was one of those moments when you are deep in the forest and you come around a bend and through the trees you catch a glimpse of a mountain river. I love the sound of the water going over, under and around the many boulders in the river bed. For this art print, I used a subtle and soft watercolor technique. So subtle in fact you have to stop and look, is this a photo or a painting. I wanted to keep the detail of the scene, but wanted to soften it up slightly. The tree stands as a focus in the foreground with the river in the background taking your eye from the moss covered trunk to the water and the surrounding forest.
I invite you to come into the gallery to view the new additions to the collection in the Landscape Watercolor Gallery.
