Down the Back Road

This watercolour painting is loosely based on  a photograph I took while driving down a back road near my cottage.

I’ve been trying to not copy everything I see especially when I work from photographs.  In this painting I started with a loose wet in wet wash then added the details.  It has the same “feel” as the photograph and what I remember of the scene but it’s definitely not a copy.
