Dusk in Winter

Dusk in Winter by Karen Gadient, 2014

Dusk in Winter – Digital watercolor.

And see the peaceful trees extend their myriad leaves in leisured dance—they bear the weight of sky and cloud upon the fountain of their veins.
— Kathleen Raine

  1. That’s beautiful. Just haunting enough, but also a little whimsical.

  2. If not winter, it’s certainly a graveyard. Haunting and gorgeous.

  3. I really like this one. 🙂

  4. Very nice. Love the Kathleen Raine quote

  5. This is so beautiful Karen, I love the colours and movement. Your painting is also very atmospheric. -:)

  6. Oh this is beautiful, I love this Karen, very rich. Great work.

  7. Beautiful! I love the cool green at the bottom blending up to the warm pink at the top.

  8. Beautiful! The trees look as if they’re doing a mesmerizing, lyrical dance. . . a stunning piece of art, as always 🙂 x

  9. Really lovely! Looks like watercolour, so I’m biased, I guess! 🙂

  10. I love this tree one, it’s very soft and relaxing! 🙂 My Mum used to love tree paintings, and ever since I discovered I could actually paint, I’ve been very attracted to trees in art. I didn’t know you could inherit a like for something! They are a good starting point for anyone who fears they can’t paint, especially silhouettes. I’ve noticed there’s a lot of art on the internet with trees featured, so there must be a lot people who like tree paintings! 😀

      I don’t see why one couldn’t inherit a fondness for certain things. 🙂 Trees were one of the first things I learned how to draw. Not the first, though. Cats were the first. Then horses. I made a ton of friends in grade school because I knew how to draw unicorns. Well, it’s just a horse, isn’t it? With a horn. 😀

      • Haha! Yes it is just a horse with a horn, and people (especially girls) seem to love them! 😀 Horses are quite a difficult animal to get right. If you can do horses – you can do anything!
