STONEBRIDGE

"Stonebridge"

I began this painting at the end of 2012 in an online 'paint along' class,
  with Johannes Vloothuis, a great artist from Canada. 

I painted it in watercolour originally but I have now reworked it and added pastel to give it texture, and the snow more depth.  I think there are a few improvements I will make including chopping ....perhaps ....a couple of inches off the bottom of the painting! This will stop the viewer's eye from being led out of the painting by following the river, and will instead draw the eye into the church which is the main focus. I have added a cropped version under the details of the painting below so you can see that it will work!
