Old Wooden Gate in Watercolour – Original Fine Art Painting

This was a painting that gradually evolved.  I started off wanting to do a tutorial on painting rust and had an ideal photo to work from.  Having recently spotted this old gate on one of our walks.  As I was working on the rust I decided to carry on and paint the gate itself.  Pleased with the finished piece I left it downstairs for Jo to look at.  “I think you should add some interest to the painting, some insects or something” is what she said…..there’s just no pleasing some people!    Well, I have to agree she was right (don’t tell her!) and the addition of some life really does bring the painting together.  I hope you like it.

Packaging & Materials
I have used an excellent quality watercolour paper and the finest of brushes to produce the tiny details which bring this painting to life.

The painting will be carefully wrapped in cellophane and protected with additional packing.  Likewise, I aim for my originals to arrive with you in the same condition that they left me.  I use the Royal Mail’s ‘Signed for Next Day’ or ‘International Tracked’ service.

A bit about me…

I love to capture the life within my paintings and also enjoy working with the watercolour medium to create fine detail.  I am continually adding to my portfolio and draw inspiration from amazing photographers and also the stunning North Devon environment.
