I have to ask what tool/brush you use to make these branches and the fence wire. Hope you don't mind a technical question in the comment section. Another magnificent piece. I'm going to run out of superlatives.

Love the composition and the way you have painted the snow - beautiful!

Suzanne, thanks--I can feel my hat getting tight on my head!

I use liner type brushes for fine lines. The length holds a lot of paint so you can drag a line for some distance. I have a couple of Robert Simmons and a Grumbacher one I'm using right now.

Triecia, I'm glad you stopped by--thanks. Also glad you took the tagging thing in good stride. Appreciated being introduced to some new (to me) artists on your blog.

Don I've been watching the watercolors you've been producing lately. Excellent work. A couple of them remind me of Andrew Wyeth's stuff, especially this one and Magpie Hangout.

Don Gray said...

Hi Silvina-- Wyeth was my big idol as a young painter. I even flew to Pennsylvania and met him just before I began painting full-time, many years ago. My influences have expanded a lot over the years, but I still carry a bit of Wyeth with me. Thanks for such a flattering comparison.
