Take a Journey

The Road Less Travelled

A watercolor from the mountains of
Sierra de Espadàn Nature Park, Spain.
This is a beautiful area for hiking. There
are many trails lined with oak and cork trees.

Take a journey this week with Illustration Friday
and go have another Paint Party.

Very nice. Makes you wonder what's beyond the path. Like the softness of it.

Cynnie
I could actually sense myself walking amongst those trees feeling the heat of the sun on my skin.
I know I always say this but you have the most amazing talent.
Hope you are well.

At first I immediately thought Robert Frost, one of my fav poets but realized slightly different in title.This road could be one described by the famous poet.....serenely beautiful and so well executed. A really great capture of a country road.
Makes me want to go for a walk in the countryside now.

Annabelle : )

This is so beautiful! It looks like someone is going in a "golden" direction. I also loved the colored cardigans. That picture is just pure charm.
Thank you, Cynthia!
Fondly,
