Heron on the lake in pink , atmospheric watercolour


Heron on the Lake in Pink is the first of three paintings of herons on lakes. It is one of a series of  Atmospheric Watercolours using limited palettes.



Susie created the background of Heron on the Lake in Pink by building up layers of paint in many washes, hence creating a smooth transition from dark greys and purples, to pinks.



Susie’s mindful walks around Heron Pond in Bushy Park, inspired this painting. Bushy Park is in South West London, especially beautiful at sunrise and sunset. In addition, it is a wonderful place and very open place to walk and is great for wildlife – from herds of deer, numerous species of birds and ancient woodlands and winding waterways.


Aims of the painting

The elegant heron symbolises stillness, confidence and harmony, complimenting the mood of the setting. Consequently, this painting brings peace and serenity to any room.
