Windswept Hill

I have spent the last week or two reading my new Ann Blockley book, Experimental Landscapes in Watercolor. Ann is a master with innovative ways to create texture in watercolors. It's a wonderful book, full of creative ideas. I have also been practicing some of the techniques - which are more difficult than they seem. Hopefully I will be able to come up with a painting using some of these techniques soon. In the mean time, here is my latest atmospheric watercolor. I decided not to use too much texture since the focal point is the area of light where I used burnt sienna to draw the eye to this area of the painting.


  1. Wonderful, Jean. You got the balance spot on I think.

    1. Thanks Vandy. I try to always keep in mind the elements and principals of design.

  2. Great work Jean, love it. Ciao!

  3. I love the way the mist is swirling over the hill, wow!
