Watercolour of Yate, 15" x 11" on Saunders Waterford Rough 300gms

Well this was a bit of an experiment plus a challenge.  The experiment was trying to capture the tree, on the right hand side of this large pub, with all it's spring blossom, and I had to use the splatter technique as a later stage, and shield parts of the painting where the white gouache was'nt allowed to go.  The next challenge was painting with the light behind and trying to get some contrast in there - luckily there was some in the tall cedar trees.
