A Postcard from Bridget in Scotland


Bridge over the River Ayr   
watercolour, gouache, pencil   
by Bridget Hunter
I was so pleased Bridget was able to take the time to paint this lovely postcard, as she’s in the final countdown completing 10 large landscapes that have to be delivered February 25 for an Exhibition in the historic artist town of Kirkcudbright.  I love the ethereal misty glow she has achieved here – she’s inspired me to give gouache a try.

I love the boldness of this - it could be on any scale - and the colours are wonderful, a real painterly painting!

I agree - it would well as a really big painting too. It's lovely.

I have a fancy for the impulsively expression of this gouache and the fine balance of the colors.

Bridget this is wonderful! I have never tried gouache but I think I might have to give it a go. I love your painterly style and colors, a treat for my eyes and they dance around enjoying all that is going on in the painting.

Wonderful colours! Yes, it looks as if it could be a much larger painting, it works so well.

A very nice postcard from Scotland. Rather inspirational. Makes me feel I should get out my art materials and join this group.

Bridget your choice of color is superb. It is a really big "little" painting. Love every stroke.

This wonderful card must have burst out of its envelope. I had the same response as everyone else - what a beautiful painting. The colours sing, Bridget.
