Winter Birches II Watercolor Painting on Cradleboard
Fresh, sparkling white snow clings to the distinctive bark of a cluster of leafless birches backed by brilliant blue winter skies.
The beauty of winter in the woods of the Dunes State Park near Saugatuck, Michigan is capture by Melissa in watercolor. Her inspiration comes from her daily walks with her dogs, along this Lake Michigan shoreline area. A variety of blues and deep browns are used to describe the shadows and reflections on the beech trees and snow.
This watercolor is created on a 1 3/4" deep gallery wrapped cradleboard.
