'The Woods' Small watercolour design with verse

This little watercolour painting, measuring approx 12 x 12cm is inspired by the beautiful Derbyshire hills and woodlands where I live and often walk.
  The verse  needs to be read from the bottom upwards :
       'Over green velvet hills, in the sun, let us run..
       To the woods and the trees, dancing leaves, may we come..
        Amongst birds in the endless blue sky shall we fly..

  Well since then I have continued to practice and enjoy creating art using these different mediums and have recently been experimenting with ways of combining pyrography and waterclour painting to create more unusual and unique pieces. 
    Here are some examples of my recent combined creations..
