In the bleak mid-winter

The bleak mid-winter, a watercolour painting by Jo DunnIn the bleak mid-winter
Frosty wind made moan ;
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone ;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow ;
In the bleak mid-winter
Long ago…

From the poem ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Christina Rossetti, published in 1872.

The trees in the foreground are along the edge of Soldier’s Field, Roundhay Park. On the far right, you might just make out the Parkinson Building.

Painting outdoors again

24th May 2017 by Jo DunnThese paintings are from 3 weeks ago, the first time I painted outdoors this year. I worked alongside friend and colleague, Michael Daly. He asked me to use his paints, brushes and preparation techniques, which are all different to mine. I’m very happy with the results.
