Broxa is just one of the great Yorkshire forests – a special joy in winter! I wanted to capture the feel of snow as it whirls all around, making you automatically blink, but then just gently brushes against you.
This 20 × 16″ watercolour was painted on Saunders Waterford 140Lb NOT paper with W & N artists paints.

As a painter of light, legend and landscape I am indebted to the wonderful medium of watercolour which gives me the versatility to incorporate many different styles in to my work.

    Masterful! I could look and look at this.

  • Thanks Ann. The aim of the painting was to try and capture that experience when snowflakes blow towards your eyes which automatically blink – but then the actual touch of the snowflake is so gentle

    Very nice Glenn, makes me want to put my jacket on. The berries and that yellowish patch really make the snow show well.

  • Glad you like it Lois.
