SPOOKY FOREST IN WINTER

You may remember Spooky Forest in Summer, when Little Girl was on her way home.





Did you wonder then what Spooky Forest would be like in Winter?





You'll be glad to know that Little Girl's house is still cosy inside.



I painted each individual image with watercolours and watercolour pens and created each picture using the wonders of Photoshop.

"Art Journal Journey" where Chrissie has chosen the fabulous theme "Winter Wonderland" and
"Paint Party Friday" where artist friends share what they have made during the previous week.

  3. As much as I enjoyed your summer forest I must admit I am really drawn to the cool blues of the lovely winter scene you created!
    Makes me want to come take a stroll ;-)

  5. It doesn't look spooky anymore!! And I'm glad to see that girl who seems to be happy now. She is walking upright and looks to her friend the dear. The rabbits are waiting for her and she knows that she will not be alone in that house. Even some flowers are blowing although it's wintertime probably some kind of christmas roses. But where is the tree standing on the right side before??
    I hope it's just gone for a walk!!

  6. The prettiest spooky forest ever! I love the blue/green tones of it. Your tree art is the best. They are so unique and creative. And they have beautiful winter blooms in them too! And the tree beside the house is Devine! Just love your foliage imagination. I know I've said that before. Little girl's house looks quite inviting. Even the local animals think so. Where I normally live, there is a house down the block straight from Switzerland. Or maybe it's Scottish. Little girl's house reminds me of it.

  14. such a lovely winter wonderland. I enjoyed seeing the changes in each. i notice that one pine tree is gone, was it used for a Christmas tree? I see rabbit tracks in the snow, but rarely see them. So nice to see them in your art.

  18. WOW!!! You are really so good in creating these gorgeous, magical pictures with Photoshop!!!! I LOVE both pictures and scrolled up and down again and again to find out how you did that. Recently I tried the filter options with Photoshop and found out some funny functions but I'm not able to create such wonderful compositions as you did here. You did such a great job! A happy new year to you and your family and all your cute little helpers!

  22. You work magic, your art is special and different and how great to have these themes you return to during the different seasons, it all feels very real here and turned icy cold. I love your trees, they have always been favourites, such an inspiration!

  23. I always love the magical worlds you create. And it's such a clever idea to use the same collage elements in different pieces. Amazing how the atmosphere changes through your use of colours.

  27. I simply ADORE the colorful trees. Even in winter, the trees have that special beauty. Cold and snowy outside, it's good to know the little girl's house is warm and cozy on the inside. This was FUN, and I loved the deer and bunnies welcoming the little girl home.

  34. I am trying to clean up and organize the blogs I like to visit, which are on my left sidebar. Since I visit you a lot, but seem to have missed several of your wonderful posts, I would like to add you to my left sidebar. I have never added anyone unless they give me permission, so I hope you will do so.

  35. What a magical place to live... even in winter it looks wonderful. I'm glad that the house is cozy inside too and I look forward to maybe seeing it in springtime.
    Happy PPF to you.

  37. Both seasons are fantastic, but I specially like the winter colours. I really love your adorable characters, the forest, the houses... all details on them. Super!

  38. I've now added you to my sidebar with gratitude. You are right that no one has ever refused, but I never "assume" they wouldn't mind, so asking is always the proper way for me to go.

  39. The winter colors are just like here in Finland right now! It's been freezing cold even here in Helsinki, -27 degrees Celsius and up in the north -41 C!

  46. These two pictures are absolutely gorgeous, Sheila! The colours just sing together! It is lovely how the little girl has her warm winter clothes on, her bobble hat and warm woolly coat. I love the fir tree on the left too, with all its decorations, the lovely circles. The animals are in their winter clothes, too! Hugs!
