Imaginary Landscape, Bright Moonlit Night - Original Watercolour Painting

150.00

An original watercolour painting of an imaginary highlands landscape, lit with bright moon and starlight. The colours are stunning and rich, and the paint has been allowed to merge to create beautiful grainy effects in the hills and sky.

My starting point for this picture was the colours. I wanted to explore the grainy properties of cobalt blue and raw and burnt sienna, to create texture. Most of the paint in the picture was applied in one very wet wash with lots of paint, allowing the paint to settle into subtle effects which I then built from, adding details to define the landscape. Because it's mainly a single wash the colours are very clear and intense rather than muddy.

The painting is 51cm wide and 33cm tall. It is painted with artists' watercolour paints and gum arabic on 140lb / 300g/m2 watercolour paper.

Add To Cart

I have tried to choose images of the painting that accurately reflect the appearance and colours of the artwork. However, colours may appear differently on different computer screens and in different lighting. If you wished to return the painting, because the colours were not as you are expecting or for any other reason, this would be covered under our normal returns policy, so long as it was returned undamaged within 30 days and the usual conditions were met.

This painting is being sold unframed. (It has been framed in the past, and so there is some tape on the back of the painting.)
