Ruins in the forest by Katarzyna-Kmiecik Ruins in the forest by Katarzyna-Kmiecik
It feels so great to finally be able to draw or paint something every now and then! It was really hard to create anything for the last year. Also, my toddler (who is now almost 2 years old :D ) is on the I-will-steal-all-your-brushes-and-pencils stage (also known as mom-I-will-finish-your-painting-for-you stage).

As you can probably guess it took me several months to complete this painting (mostly at nights) and because of that, I feel like there's way too much detail. I guess, I need to do some quick watercolors now ;P

Watercolor painting
50x70 cm
White Nights and Windsor and Newton watercolor paints
250gsm almost smooth watercolor paper

The original painting is sold, but you can still buy signed giclee prints of it in my Etsy shop:

I love the texture in this. I'm also partial to overgrown stone ruins.
