Wandering In The Woods - Watercolour

After a long period painting only with oil, I came back to watercolour. This is a view of a little wood in Swindon. Although it is in the middle of town, you get some views without any building and you feel as if you were in a big forest.

I used mostly dry technique, only spraying some water with a spray bottle to paint the blueish background.

I also used masking fluid to reserve the light areas on the path, create light in the foliage and draw the ferns and grass blades in the foreground.
