February Tree

February Tree © Marina Kanavaki

Technique: watercolour & charcoal Dimensions: 24x34cm [unframed]


The blue and turquoise hues and the harsh charcoal lines were inspired by the frozen stillness of winter.

Happy February everyone!

  1. That’s a pleasantly blue winter tree.

    In contrast, you may have heard that February in Austin (Texas) began with an ice storm that left hundreds of thousands of people in the cold without power for several days.

  2. What a stunningly gorgeous tree.
    Perfect colours for February, dahling!
    It’s -20C here tonight.
    I’ll be warm thinking of you.

  3. Hi Marina, what a cool tree! It surely needs to be hugged. I tried to comment this morning from my phone but it just wouldn’t work so here I am at 1pm and it’s still raining. It’s cold too! Oh, Marina, all your paintings are just wonderful (my artwork always seems frozen, very stiff. Perhaps I need some of your sunshine). 🐢😎🐢🙋‍♂️

    • I don’t agree with you at all about your artwork! It’s really beautiful!
      Thank you so much, my friend!
      Our winter has freshly arrived. Slightly delayed this year! However, the sun was very bright today so I’m sending over some rays! 😉 😎🔆😀

    • A ha ha.. all these years of ‘practice’ in repetition huh?!!!! 😉 🤣 This year I decided to skip the ‘official’ colors / meanings symbolisms etc of the months and let my paintbrush take lead! Happy February, Frank! Yamas!
      So happy you like it!

Happy to hear your thoughts
