Glastonbury Tor

I found recently a lovely photo of Glastonbury Tor with the sun setting and a mist at the foot of the hill, so I grabbed my paints and set to making it into a watercolour.





 It measures approx. 10" x 6" for which I don't have a Mount to put it in!.... so will use this painting as a reference for a full sized watercolour in the future, probably looking at something twice this size.
Anyway and meanwhile I'm pleased with this version.

  8. Soft and pretty! I like it. I paint in my journal so far and they aren't conducive to framing should I ever make one good enough I want it for that. Yegads, I don't know if I could ever consider one a study so I could redo it hoping to make it better.

    I'd be inclined to cut my own mount for this one :)

  12. Hi All - and thanks so much for all your lovely comments...

    I agree Pat, I think I should cut a mount myself!

    See what you mean Robin about the Brigadoon...very good!

    Thanks Annie, Glastonbury Tor is an ancient monument - wikipedia explains about it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glastonbury_Tor

    Cheers everyone :)

  13. Ann, I have been aching to go to Glastonbury Tor since I read the Mists of Avalon years ago...Hope to get there in the next few years. Your painting is lovely, so soft and quiet.
