Forest Trail by Glenn Marshall

Back to the forest again – sorry!
But it is my favourite place – there is something about forests and woods that invoke deep feelings. Perhaps it’s a race memory of a time when our ancestors lived in forests – places that provided safety, shelter and food – that resonates down the ages to us.
What does it matter – I like forests because they are forests!
This watercolour was painted on Saunders Waterford 140LB 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.

    I like the touch a fantasy here. Very pretty.

  • Forests always have a touch of fantasy for me – what’s that behind that tree?, what was that rustle in the wind? – you obviously know what I mean and feel the same way.

    No need to apologise! I like the bold, life affirming colours and the sense of distance.

  • Thanks Ann – perhaps it just needed a couple of hollyhocks!

    How eye catching this is! Strong colours, smashing feel for the place.

  • Thanks Beatrice. I’m glad you like it. I was looking for a subject with stronger colours to give me a lift!

    Such a lovely place!

  • The forest is located on the North Yorkshire Moors between Scarborough and Whitby at a place called Falling Foss- it’s a super place.
