In where I get dropped into an enchanted wood...

Today I felt like I'd been dropped into an enchanted world. I kept expecting to see some mythical creature pop out from behind a tree and beckon me with a crook of its gnarled finger. Wow.
It was cold: there were wisps of snow dusted here and there. My brush was freezing up on the second pass. But it was magical. I didn't have time to complete my painting but here is my start. As for my other photos here - they're going to be paintings too. A winter project!

I LOOOOOOOOVE this! Your tree paintings are so magical, you can totally tell that's what it felt like to be ther. :)

Wow! I love that strong colour - I imagine you will be letting it show through the layers? It's great to see your set up too. I'm afraid I'm a fair-weather painter - preferring the comfort of my studio! :0)

It was magical. Cathy figures that I did my best ever painting yesterday. I did however have nightmares around trees grabbing at me while I painted.

This is an amazing start Kim. I can't wait to see where it goes from here.

Your paintings are lovely, but those photographs are works of art too.
