Red-Roofed Countryside Lodge in Watercolor

This serene countryside, showcasing a red-roofed lodge surrounded by endless woods, was painted using Winsor & Newton® watercolors on a 10” x 14”, 140 lb, cold press Arches watercolor paper. Window frame details were added using white gouache and the yellow straw in the foreground was added using a yellow watercolor pencil.
