Trees in Water in blue and grey


Trees in Water in blue and grey is one of a series of Atmospheric Watercolours using limited palettes.


Photos taken by Susie and a photographer friend, David Gordon inspired Trees in Water in blue and grey. They took the photo of trees growing out of the flooded lake in the gardens surrounding  Osterley House in West London.

Osterley House is one of the last surviving country estates in London and is surrounded by beautiful gardens, park and farmland. The architect and designer Robert Adam designed the building in the late 18th century.  The Child family lived there and entertained and impressed many of their friends and clients.

I created this painting by building up layers of paint in many washes allowing for a smooth transition of blues and greys. In addition, the sparse trees growing out of the flood water is a reminder of the strength of nature in the face of adversity.

Trees in Water in blue and grey will attract nature lovers who like minimalist and atmospheric paintings with limited palettes. Furthermore, this painting brings a sense of calm to any room in your home.
