Winter forest watercolour

Winter forest watercolour Heather Telford

When I posted the watercolour butterfly tutorial I mentioned that I had divided my watercolour block into four panels, two of which worked out. One was the butterfly and the other was this little scene. I started with some masking fluid flecks then wet the top two thirds of the panel with water. I used the Christmas Park stamp from Penny Black and the techniques for creating snowbanks described in this tutorial.  Because I was layering the images I did use a post-it note a couple of times to mask the white snow areas from the bottom of the tree stamp.  It really was trial and error for this one but I am happy to say it worked in the end.

It will be winter here for quite some time yet so expect some wintry scenes interspersed with the floral cards now and then!
