Too cold to rest
Too cold to rest Artist quality watercolours on watercolour paper 11.7" x 8.3"
I painted this scene from a photograph I'd taken during a walk after a snowfall near where I live in Nottingham. It is near the top of a steep rise called Corporation Oaks. There are some rather grand Victorian houses along this tree-lined (oaks, of course) path and is actually a conservation area within the city of Nottingham. Near the top is this bench, which I was very tempted to sit on as I'd had a long walk, but it was just too cold! If you're interested in purchasing this work, please have look in my Etsy shop.
