Class Assignment - Large Tree

WINTER DAY
Original Watercolor - 8x10
$45 - Buy Here

The topic for class last week was to incorporate a close up of a tree into a painting. This was my demo showing how to paint texture on the tree using burnt sienna and ultramarine blue. Those two colors mixed equally make a wonderful gray for shadows and you can make it a little more blue or a little more brown if you want. We also talked about focal points - the tree is obviously the center of interest becasue it is the largest shape, has the most detail and has the brightest color.

It is not quite winter yet but we did have snow on Pikes Peak - must of inspired me to paint a winter scene that day.
