Sunday Watercolors - Inspired by Lars Lerin


One of my favorite Swedish watercolor artists is called Lars Lerin and I recently borrowed one of his many wonderful books; Mellan Husen (Between the houses) - paintings from Lofoten, Norway.
I was immediately inspired to try to test what techniques he uses to get the amazing light he has in his paintings. This is my first try:

 (OBS - the paintings there are not only by me, though I wish because I've collected some favorites)

Have a great Sunday, hugs, Karin

Really stunning, Karin... the sense of light here is fabulous with the house's reflection on [what looks to me like] a frozen pond. I'd love to take lessons from you!!

Goodness, how wonderful! Do you sell your pictures... or at least frame them to enjoy? They are far to good to hide away, Jo x
