PINE CONES Winter/Summer©


This is a watercolor of a (female) European Pine cone. ( Botanical: Strobilus)
The name cone derives from the fact that the shape resembles a geometric cone.
And that is what I personally like so much in this watercolor!

I painted 4 of them in seasonal colors.
Here are the Winter and the Summer version.

The blue purple one symbolizes WINTER, the hot Red Yellow one represents SUMMER.

Soon I'll download the Spring and Fall version.


Abstract watercolor on cold press heavy weight paper 140 LB (330 g/m2)

I painted this WINTER pine cone in two different sizes:
11' X 15' (27.9 X 8.1 CM)
18' X 24' (45.7 X 61 CM)
Ready to be framed.

The textured feeling in the top one is exciting and it makes such a unique abstract. I realy liked how you retained the pine cone feeling.
