Swiss Cabin

Finally got round to working on an ink and watercolour painting that I started last summer when on holiday in the Swiss mountains. The houses there are so beautiful, intricate and full of life that it is impossible not to be fascinated and want to capture their charm.

I tend to be over cautious with colour/intensity/darkness when using watercolour (which is odd as I primarily love images with strong contrast). I seem to find it hard to have the confidence to be brave and go bold. Instead I tend to build it up slowly layer by layer but that isn’t really how watercolours should be used….!  It is almost there but there are still most certainly some finishing touches that need to be done.
