Imaginative landscape study with hunters approaching a lake side castle. Pen and wash with additions of transparent watercolors. I am trying out Winsor & Newton's large pan professional watercolors. Original on cold press Sennelier paper, 4 x 9.5 inches. This ratio is similar to a widescreen movie format like Panavision's 2:35.

Hi Erik,
The colour bleed from the pen is great. Top work

I dig the earthy palette, and that hit of light on the water is a nice touch.

This is a moody piece. Your paintings are delightful! They provide just enough information that there is some ambiguity. You leave room for the imagination.

i like the darkness and saturation of your work! (not only this one)

i hope you're not offended if i accidentally "borrow" your palette for some future stuff :)
